Remotely mount the speaker.

I did this, it was sooo loud afterwards, that I had to put a pot on it 
to be able to adjust the volume.  I drilled a small 1/8" hole just above 
the "Y" in WinKeyer USB printed on the front panel. Painted the insides 
of the hole black, and with some silicone glue stuck the tiny speaker 
hole so it lines up with this hole.  It is amazingly LOUD. like I said 
so Loud I had to add a Pot on it.  And it is soo loud the pot rarely 
gets above a 1 on the 0 to 10 equivalent scale. During Field Day it 
maybe got up to a 4 or so at the most.
