The Lionel site says it is an 8 ohm speaker.  In the pic attached, the two yellow wires lead to the speaker.  There is no room for a baffle above it.  I am thinking of bypassing it and mounting a small speaker into the space just in front of the frame assembly (open area at top of picture).  will need a small speaker that does not exceed 1-1/4" x 2-1/8" size, including a surround for it.  Would appreciate a suggestion to source the speaker needed.

According to the back of the existing speaker, it is rated 1.5w and 8 ohms.  Fumbling for choices based on the existing ratings, I am considering switching to the speaker listed below.  At 28mm (1.1 inches) it would fit into the cavity in front of the frame.  Now for the question that reveals my complete ignorance of this sort of thing, is there any benefit to attempt to use something rated at higher wattage or higher ohms?  If yes, how much higher could one safely go?  Or is that a mistake of biblical proportions?
