I would say no for two reasons - first, I think it is coincidence that I recommend high SPL speakers, and that happens to be the name of this manufacturer. Second, the frequency response has no low end - those bottom out at 5 kHz.

By high SPL I mean high Sound Pressure Level. SPL in this context means a very efficient speaker in that it can make a lot of sound with little power. Typically SPL is measured in units. Here is an overly accurate definiton of SPL:

WikiPedia SPL

So basically what you want to find is a very efficient speaker - the LM386 operating at 5 V is not running on derated power, which means low efficiency speakers won't produce much volume. If you take a look at Mouser or DigiKey you can see they offer a variety of speakers - just make sure you pick one with a large ( 92+ ) SPL rating.

I hope that helps, and sorry for the confusion.
