As you  can read in the archives, the speakers in the 961 and 962 leave much

If  this is the case, to keep the profile the same height  as the rest of the 
Paragon  Station, I would mount the speaker  horizontally in the enclosure 
both top  and bottom front  ports.

But for now I am very pleased seeing what a difference a proper  speaker can  
and does make with this radio.
