Audio [Q] [almost Q] Stereo speaker mod [almost Request]

Yeah, it is correct. I'd like to know if there is a possibility to add anothe or a whole two speakers to nexus 5 for stereo music . Yeah, it IS possible, but would it be fairly easy to do? Is there enough room to put there another speaker? Or maybe I would need to remove microphone, put it somewhere else, then rewire headphone jack wire to the additional speaker and the phone would think that I am using my headphones all the time..? Would I need a custom circuit to reroute headphone jack and still use it (amplifiers etc)? Would anybody risk their phones to get a decent stereo on their device? I don't have N5 yet, but I am planning to get it in few weeks (1 to 3 weeks). What is your opinion on this? Are there any experts in DIY electronics to help me (and probably other users) with this? Yeah, a lot of questions, but maybe someone is competent to answer these? I would be really happy Thanks

EDIT: Is this right section?
Nexus 5

I don't think there's enough space, you don't have a stereo amplifier for the speakers and I think you'd be better off with a phone that was designed from the beginning with stereo speakers.
Nokia 5110 > Alcatel OT303 > Nokia 3310 > Nokia 1100 > Nokia 1112 > Nokia 5000 > Nokia 6555 > Nokia 3120C > Nokia E51 > Nokia E52 > Motorola Defy > Galaxy Nexus > Nexus 5

<-- Hit THANKS if this post helped you!

Also, having stereo speakers right beside each other kind of defeats the purpose. The OPO does this and there is little to no discernible separation between both the speakers on the bottom.
