Changing audio output from speaker to aux

Hi. Im kinda new to this but here goes.

I have a philips wakeup light HF35050 with a horrendous speaker that kills me every morning. So I was thinking I could change the speaker to having a 3,5mm cable running out of the device in to a proper speaker.

After I managed to open the thing I found that it has a 4 ohm 1 watt speaker inside it. Now I dont know much about what goes as an input for the speaker but I figured I could somehow work an aux cable into it. Anyone have an idea how I would do that?

Use a switched socket, then the internal speaker is normally connected and the extension speaker is connected instead when plugged in. https://www.bitsbox.co.uk/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=225_226_293&products_id=3145 The wires should be soldered, contact your local Radio Ham for advice. http://rsgb.org/
