OT: Simple electronics question...

        I do realize that this doesn't really apply here, but I know some of
the electronic geniuses here can help me out...
        I have a little Timex clock radio. Works great, except when I want to
fall asleep to the radio, I need to turn it down so as not to disturb my
wife. Problem is, that the volume control isn't sensitive enough at the
low volume I want.
        So, my thought is to put a resistor on the positive lead of the
speaker, which (I think) would lower the overall volume output, and give
me a wider range to adjust the volume to a quiet level.
        I'm just not sure what size resistor to use, or if that is even the
right way to go. I haven't cracked it open yet, but I'm fairly certain
it's only a single speaker in there, and it's probably a 16 ohm one at
that. Am I on the right track?
