I'm not sure the speakers need to be big. Standard computer speakers 
may be sufficient on the presenters laptop, etc. Or even the laptop 
speakers themselves. Also, perhaps not an issue, even for you, in a 
sufficiently quiet room. But, for me, even the Huether has sufficient 
noise coming in from downstairs, through the closed doors, to compete 
with you.

Even when at the working center, with the 2nd speaker at the back, 
hearing the presenter's voice was problematic, given the background 
noise. Perhaps a mic'ing issue.

More technically challenging, and certainly less weight, would be a 
second laptop with computer speakers at the back of the room pointing 
forward. It's the laptop to laptop (wireless) audio tunnelling that I 
haven't a clue about.

	Create a t'eed virtual audio device that is tapped via a tunnelled in 
remote laptop? (Brent? Jack?)
