Default Building portable speakers

Hi guys, I'm planning to build a set of low power portable speakers. I've been searching the net untill my eyes bleed without finding the speakers I'm after.

I'm going to build something similar to the creative travelsound speaker set with visible speaker cones.

Is there anyone out there who knows where to buy 2"-3" 0.5-2watts fullrange speakers with rubber surround that look nice.

New on the forum and it looks promising

Try parts express.

I tried three times to give you a link but it isn't working this morning. Go to their main page and punch in "extended range" into the basic search. There are some nice 2 - 4" units.

Donīt know if Monacor products are easily obtainable in Sweden

I have a pair of those, Monacor MS-55 microphone-speaker thingie. I have not built a decent box for these but sound is nice what I tried and is said to take 5 watts. It is ugly but small anyway.
