If you don't have a lot of money go to a hamfest and pick up a 4 ohm 10 watt 
speaker about 6 to 8" diameter.  Build or buy a cabinet; put foam baffling 
material in the back behind the speaker and grill cloth over the front.  You 
can get grill cloth at a piece goods/hobby/sewing store.   If you don't have 
time to make one you can get the phono wire and plug at radio shack and 
maybe find a ready made speaker in a cabinet at a hamfest.  I found a guy 
selling PA system speakers in cabinets that way and they work fine.  If you 
can't find 4 ohm speakers and want to have a load that matches the Omni's 4 
ohm output (this is not critical however) you can always hook up two 8 ohm 
speakers in parallel with a phono Y connector.  Any of these setups will 
make a huge difference over the p.s. and Omni built in speakers.
