What speaker is needed to replace the ones inside? Mini Lifejacket 3

First off, the device is a Mini Lifejacket 3, not 2. iFixit just doesn’t have the Lifejakcet 3 as an option when choosing a device.

One of the speakers inside of the device had one of the wires disconnect due to a poor soldering job, which during my analysis, the second wire also popped clean off with little effort.

The device houses two 4 Ohm 3 Watt speakers and after searching online to find a replacement, the ones that came up are in various sizes and won’t fit it seems like.

Anyone know what the actual speaker is to put inside the device?

Thanks in advance.

Hey Russell. I’m not sure if I can find an identical speaker to the one in the lifejacket, but I wonder one with the same measurements would be a suitable replacement. You’ll have to measure the speaker yourself (as I don’t own one), but this one is 40mm diameter, 20mm height, which seems in the ballpark. As far as the wires go, I would try to resolder the original ones rather than find a replacement for them given that white plastic harness they’re attached to.
