This one may work in the pinephone: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32861312441.html

Cheers!
I have tested the phone as the factory requested and they are having me ship the phone back for repair possibly a wiring issue.  Thanks for all the input

I found some that may work, on walmart . com of all places Smile  . I've removed the speaker and noticed a nice gouge in the foil like cone part. When they arrive and I get one installed I'll post the result here.
Cheers!

UPDATE: The batch of 4 speakers arrived and they were ~0.6mm taller than oem. I installed one anyway and it fits ok.. the very very slight bulge (only noticeable to me ) now in the location of the speaker Smile can be avoided by increasing the opening size on the back plastic frame that holds the speaker down thus allowing it to protrude (but then would need to be glued in place or something).

The speakers arrived with wire leads potted in and I soldered them to the large pads on the flexible pcb under the speaker.  Where the oem speaker springs made contact.

I removed the adhesive film on the bottom of the speaker magnet so it would contact the large pad directly under it (like the oem speaker did).

The result was a success. The new speaker cranks and my pinephone sounds almost less terrible than when new!  

Also my first job with the Pinecil and it performed perfectly. Heart

Cheers!
