This would be a good little project.
I think the speaker is pretty loud compared to other phones that I have had.
Don't know if there is a way to increase performance in the small confines that the speaker occupies and considering the Pearl's power limitations. It seems that the speaker/sound is tweaked to perform as well as it can. I mean, if you hold the Pearl in your hand and take in its size, it's a pretty small form factor to try and get "bigger sound" out of it.
Personally, I am happy with the speaker's performance. If I want better sound I hook up my Seidio 2.5mm to 3.5mm adapter and put on some headphones.
