That's exactly the speaker I use with my R8 and it's a dandy.  I've heard
on some SWL lists that the current Optimus PRO-X33AV speaker, RS 40-2079,
is the same as a Minimus 7 but I can't verify that.  The 3" woofer and 1"
tweeter sound like the same configuration.

The price of the PRO-Z33AV is $39.95, still cheaper than the Drake speaker.
