I have yet to use any internal SS radio's speaker except for an occasional test 
or possibly a portable set-up.  
They may as well leave it out as far as I'm concerned.  NONE of them come 
anywhere close to the sound quality I get from simple outboard speakers.
(Note, this does NOT include the over-priced, cheap speaker in a metal box 
often sold as a matching "accessory" by the big-three.)
Personally, I find the recovered audio from my K3s, feeding two little computer 
speakers to be the best of any modern radio I have ever used.
That said, it's hard to beat the audio from an old boatanchor radio with 
push-pull 6V6's driving a big 12" speaker cabinet.

In my case the issue was low frequency harmonics in the case/assembly causing 
the audio to distort. Removing the speaker from the case resulted in very 
excellent audio from the built in speaker. I re-installed it and use an 
external speaker now (on the rare occasion I need/want external sound). 
It's largely a non-issue as I was surprised to find I operate most often with 
headphones so I can hear better.
