Cosmetically Nice !!  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
If you are after a speaker that cosmetically matches your FT-991(A) you can't get a better match - However, do not expect the speaker to provide any better sound than that which comes out of the FT-991 - With a such high price tag (here in the UK) my suggestion is don't waste your money.

Not Great  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I found that for the high cost of this speaker, the sound was not that good. I used with a FT-991A. The sound was "raspy" and sort of "buzzy". I took N0USR advice and purchased the Peerless 830984 2.5" speaker as a replacement. WARNING: this speaker does not directly fit, you will need to do some machine and trimming! I also put in some foam inside the speaker. It does sound better now. I also had to widen up the receive setting on the Ft-991A to at least 2.8 KHz so it sounds less tinny.

As I mentioned in my original review the stock sound from the Yaesu SP-10 was very disappointing.

I have since replaced the cheapo paper speaker it came with with this unit:
Peerless 830984 2-1/2" Full Range Woofer

The Peerless speaker made a superb difference, the SP-10 with the Peerless is quite impressive and made a very worthy upgrade to SP-10.
