The smaller the speaker, the crappier it'll sound. That's the general rule. But these days, semiconductors are getting so advanced, and NXP wants to change of all that with its new NXP TFA9887 IC chip which claims to boost the output of tiny speakers from 0.5 watts to 2.6 watts. That's a huge jump!
This would mean that speakers in smartphones and tablets and other portable consoles could get better speakers. And even more impressive is that the all-in-one chip can work its magic on existing speaker technology already in use.
A device can send as much power to its built in speakers as much as it wants, but there's a risk of destroying it in the process. The audio has the powerful deep bass portions clipped for safety, which is why it usually sounds bad. The NXP TFA9887 is able to incorporate sensors and temperature protection measures to ensure that audio can be driven as high as possible without the speaker being damaged.
