The speakers are from digi key. They have a pretty good selection for projects.

To control the excessive fan noise I made a circuit that controls fan speed based on temperature. My laptop is much quieter now, and is almost silent on startup. This circuit was found here: http://www.redcircuits.com/Page109.htm
