Digi-Key is at 800-344-4539, page 342 of their catalog has a bunch of
Panasonic Speakers; see (Swap in
V2 instead of V3, I'd guess, if you have an older Adobe Acrobat.)

Look at Try part number P10173-ND ($4.29). (Credit for that goes to
Rod Salazar on the The-Gadgeteer.Com general PC110 list.) 20mm
diameter, 3.5mm thick, 0.2W, 7 Ohms impedance - sound like a good match?
