The speaker in my R3 went out several months back. I had contacted Uniden to find out if the sold a replacement speaker and was told they did not and that I had to send it in if I wanted it repaired and it would be their flat fee, don't remember but I think it was $99. Me being a cheap SOB, have been using a Beltronics external speaker to get by.

I finally broke down and purchased this one off of Ebay. Go it today and installed it. Seems to work. WRONG ohm rating though. Original is 16 ohm .5 watt, the replacement is 8 ohm 1 watt. Curious to see if it will last or kill my detector.

There's always a way around it. Find the speaker part number on the original and goto www.mauser.com. Look it up, thats how I did it with my redlines.
