Lightbulb Cheap way to improve your bluetooth headset!

I find my Sena SMH 10, while it works well, is not really loud or clear at highway speeds and I like to use it for listening to music. Came across this video recently researching solutions and thought I would post this brilliant and cheap idea.

I've had the Scala G4's and G9's the only thing i had to do was add more padding to the speaker pocket in my helmets to put the speaker closer to my ears. Mine work great no way i can stand it with the volume all the way up.

What I tend to look for is to be able to hear speaking clearly at highway speeds with ear plugs in. So really high volume levels I feel like I need at times.

Just got a Scala PalkTalk recently and went on a ride with a buddy that has one also. When he was talking to me i had to turn it down several times because his voice was really loud...Plus with the PalkTalk if you have some ear buds you prefer. The speakers connect through a 3.5mm jack so easy to switch out speakers...

WOW what a great idea. I have to do this ASAP. the Sena speakers SUCK so bad. It is embarassingly low quality for a $130 headset.

Pretty much any two wire speaker will work?

I'm thinkin you kinda have to match impedence ratings for this to work right.
Not very schooled on this subject so I may be wrong.
