Power  is not enough

I want to buy a speaker to connect it to the Arduino and play some music. I've done some research and noticed that all speakers operate at least 2 W.

The Arduino offers a 5V voltage differential and 0.25 milliAmperes so machines work between 1,5*10^-4 W.

Which speakers do I have to use?

You can connect a separate audio pre-amp, you can use other power source and get a louder sound setup.
