Default Small and LOUD! iPhone size and LOUD

Hello,

I need a speaker system that is as small as an iphone's (or android, etc etc). Can anybody point me to a good source? Rather not DIY, but open to anything at this point.

TIA!

Hi, the Tang Band 1942S model is the only that fits with your dimensions.
80 dB sensitivity is typical with this size of speakers.

Loud & really small is not really possible. If you look to some of the drivers that come out of computers you could get down to that size. 3D printing is likely the best approach to make an enclosure.

It won’t go low and it won’t go really loud.

I have a growing collection for iMacs & other Macs.

How will it be powered?

See, that is what is frustrating. Small AND loud IS possible. iphones, ipads, other devices CAN do it. SO: other than stupidly trying to hack a phone, there has to be another solution that comes even close. Has to be!....somebody out there must have a solution

Can be powered at this point by an DC voltage spec'd. The audio will drive the rest of the system design.

No iPhones and iPads are not loud and certainly no low end.

+1.

And even the much ďlargerĒ systems in iMacs donít reach loud & low.

An interesting note: The iMacs iím getting now for recycle have 2 drivers/side (about 1 cm each) and look to be bi-amped.

nnob - if I read your first post correctly, you're looking for speakers as small as those inside the 'phone?

two words:
good luck
not likely
current technology?

If you can tolerate them, in-ear 'phones are probably about as close as you're gonna get. The only driver close to that small that I'm aware of that can be heard across the room is attached to the exit end of your alimentary tract, and plays a limited spectrum of notes. .

Yeaaaah...you guys are starting to get why my handle is "noob"! Well done.

If it was an easy solution I probably would have found it, but you guys are the pros WW and I thought, hey, let's see what's out there.

Disappointed I am.

It seems I need to explain what I meant by iphone speakers being loud:

iphone speakers are loud.

Make sense

Folks, this is a subjective judgment. I think they are loud, loud enough anyways. Audiophiles and pros, I get it, they sound terrible to you. I do not judge, your ears are better than mine

SIMPLE: for my application they are perfect and the loudest speaker (I'm talking about the speakers at the base of the phone, for audio and speaker phone) at the perfect size. I don't care about loosing low end. I just need something similar.

Somebody have a better, less stupid solution than chrisb?

TIA

Yup - nothing more stoopid than most of my suggestions, so you've go nowhere to go but up.

There are numerous powered speaker docks - would something like this suffice?

If you were a bit more specific as to the exact application / size constraints, etc, you might get more useful advice.
