A quick and easy way to get a "loudspeaker" for your crystal set is to grab a plastic funnel in the automotive section. A crystal earpiece dropped into the end makes for a decent "speaker" when you would like to listen to your local station without being glued to the earpiece. The long smaller diameter funnels work better than the large, shorter ones.

A while back YouTube user Victrola Guy demonstrated a transmission funnel as a substitute horn for his Edison cylinder player (see photo below). He said the sound was surprisingly good. I bought one to test on my Edison and it did quite well for a $2 funnel. Thanks to your suggestion, it will now find another use with one of my crystal sets.
