Replacement speaker makes your FT-817/857 sound like a new radio!

***A quick and easy upgrade for any FT-817***

Powerful 2 Watt speaker makes your radio sound louder and brighter.

Mylar cone is waterproof - unlike the paper/card cone on the stock radio - great for portable operating.

Suitable for all versions of the FT-817 and FT-857.

Easy to fit. Click here for FT-817 instructions.

Price is for one (1) speaker. We recommend that you keep one in stock as a spare.

W = 57 mm H = 12 mm. Likely to be suitable for FT-897 (not confirmed).

 This item is stocked as a result of a customer recommendation. He loved his replacement speaker and thought more people should have access to this great product. Thanks to Chris (G7DDN).

    Ideal replacement

    Posted by Adrian on 25th Aug 2019

    My original paper coned speaker had deteriorated, partly through getting wet, and this replacement works well. I carefully removed the rubber gasket from the old speaker, using a craft knife, to re-use. With this, the new speaker fits perfectly.

    FT817 Loudspeaker

    Regret loudspeaker does not sound right. I think due to not being securely clamped, should be supplied with new O rings.

    Replacement FT817 Speaker

    Posted by Anthony Enright on 20th Apr 2019

    Much better than original speaker, a bit tricky to fit in conjunction with Sotabeams filter mod. But with a bit of care and measuring and hot melt glue it fits just fine. Great mod.

    easy to fit and makes a huge difference for the price. Impressed with audio quality, makes the ssb filtering easier to listen to. Highly recommended.

    Excellent speaker

    Posted by Bas PE4BAS on 2nd Oct 2018

    Received the speaker well packed. Replaced it in about 10 minutes. It was the most easy mod for my FT-817. Speaker sounds good. Quality is better as the original one and it is humidity resistant which is important when using the radio in the field.

    Replacement speaker for FT817nd.

    Posted by Les Virgo on 27th Aug 2018

    After the original speaker in my FT817nd recently failed I was very pleased to see that Sotabeams had released a Mylar cone speaker to suit the'817. I have had previous experience with Mylar cone speakers in my working life. I ordered 1 & received it quite quickly. The replacement process was quick & painless as the speaker was a perfect fit. When I switched the radio on I was rewarded with much better audio & again I am satisfied with my Sotabeams deal. Les, VK5KLV.
