Converting speaker for scanner

I have a speaker for a Spectra that I would like to know if I can use for a scanner? Can I just put the connector I need on it or is it possible? Thanks.

Most modern scanners will sound quiet when connected to a Motorola speaker, even with the volume wide open. You may want to look for the amplified speaker that goes with the XTVA.
When exposed to Rapid Fire Growth or Thermal Emergency, two things are lost:
1. Ability to use fine motor skills
2. Presence of mind
