Working on upgrading a PS2 V5 with a PS2/3 stacker board.  The fuel tank takes a 45mm speaker.  What is a good source/part number for (4 ohm) (0.5 watt) (45.0mm Dia.) speakers or equivalent?  

Thanks

Well, the bad news is, MTH doesn't have anything in 4 ohms that will fit that one, so you'll have to troll the Internet and find one.  I had a source, but they don't have that size anymore.  Not sure what I'll do the next one that some in for repair, it'll probably get an 8 ohm speaker as they're easier to find.

Thanks, yes I have found a few on internet that are 8 OHM 45mm but the walts are not 5w, they range from anywhere from 2 to 9w.  I am sorry for my ignorance but does it have to be exactly 5w or is their a safe range that will not cause damage?

Any of the 2W through 5W will work.  Truthfully, the 5W rated speakers typically don't have the same volume as the lower rated ones, it comes down to efficiency.  Obviously, if you blast the 2W ones with super high volume, they may croak.

FWIW, the speakers used in PS/1, which had plenty of volume, were rated at .2 watts.
