I don't use the internal speaker on the K3 as it sits under a shelf and
with the radio sloping rearward, that is probably a recipe in
frustration.  I have a pair of Radio Shack Minimus 3.5 speakers (now
probably getting close to 25 years old and not amplified) connected to
the K3 and facing me positioned on either side and to the rear of the
computer monitor that sits on the shelf directly above the K3.  The
audio is pleasant to me with the K3's volume control rarely advanced
above the 9:30 or so position.
