While this Whistler model isn't a really good radar detector, most likely if you call Whistler then they will happily send you a replacement speaker. The speaker simply plugs into a jack on the main circuit board. All you need is a set of small Phillips head screwdrivers in order to open up the 1743 and to remove the clips which hold the speaker in place. Radio Shack's set of Kronus Phillips and flat head screwdrivers work nicely for this sort of thing.

Over heating & burning power cord

The fuse in the power cord should be no higher than 2 amps to protect your electrical system, so double check that the power cord that you purchased has a fuse in it and its no more than 2 amps. The 1743 model came with a 1 year warranty. If the unit is under 1 year old and you have a dated store receipt, then see can click on "contact Us. then click on"shipping information".

New speaker

if you have an old cordless phone like a uniden or cell phone you can take the speaker out and attach it to your radar detector it works just fine in mine,no problems. you might have to remove the speaker housing if it has one. Justy be real careful not to puncture the speaker as i almost did.
