The Speaker assembly (the part that emits volume when the "speaker phone" function is enabled) also acts as a microphone.

Although there are already two microphones throughout the iPhone (one at the top beside the headphone jack and the other on the bottom Left of the iPhone) the Speaker assembly has a duo function and will act as a third microphone to pick up more volume when the iPhone is further away from your mouth.

Sounds to me as though your Speaker Assembly is faulty and you will need to install a new one :( I Hope this helps!
