      I believe the jack was designed for an external
      earphone. Use to be you could use an external earphone jack to drive a
      speaker..........before bottom feeder lawyers got involved. Now,
      manufacturers have to limit earphone volume, so users don't sue them for
      damages. I guess lawyers never heard of PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY.
      We can thank lawyers for all those stupid warning labels
      on just about everything from hair driers to firearms. Remember when kids
      went to the bus stop to get picked up? Lawyers took care of that.......isn't
      it fun getting stuck behind a school bus when they have to stop at every
      kids house to pick up or drop off?
      Ok, ranting off. Bottom line is: I think that's why
      there is not sufficient volume to drive a speaker from an earphone jack. You
      could try an amplified speaker.
