    Hi all,
    in case you have an FT 817 or FT 857 and are annoyed by the speaker performance there is a simple fix you can apply.
    You can replace the internal speaker with the following:

    Massoth 8241020

    It is a speaker for train models made of mylar. Sounds fantastic.

    Part is discontinued but you can still find it here https://www.allaboutlgb.com/massoth%20loudspeakers.html

    Simply replace the speaker, desolder the wire from the old speaker and connect to the new one. 10 min surgery no anesthesia.

    Best,
    Angelo
