Watch a lot of movies on the tablet and find the speakers are not as loud as I'd like - old ears being the real issue.

Was thinking of trying bluetooth speakers to help the situation and also not involve any extra wiring, no experience with bluetooth speakers.

Would they work/help in this situation?
Suggestion for speakers?

Yes, they will help.

Sony/ JBL are good brands.

You are so right - speakers arrived today and exceeded my expectations - ordered a 2nd kit for desktop.
Another way to get loud sound, use a HDTV for the screen and the sound. Can be turned way up.
But your solution is good for a tablet type device

I have the JBL Filp 4 in Black. Only used it for travel purposes, so it still looks new after 7 years ownership. Still in the original box :)

Nice speaker with lots of sound and bass.
