If I understand you correctly, you want to use a BT speaker set and transplant it into your MC helmet, right?

Find the BT Transceiver, keep that external and just run the speaker wires under the cheek pads.

I think the next time I ride, I'll try my BT collar headset. Small enough to fit and should provide a little bit of hearing protection. Thanks.

Are you sure that it's a great idea to modify the inside of your helmet? Maybe I'm being overly cautious but it seems like you might be in a bad way if you ever needed your helmet for its intended purpose and you've modified the way the padding was engineered, not to mention having an extra object in there.
I do have a BT helmet but it was designed with it in mind.
Again, maybe I'm over-thinking things.
I think I'd rather go with BT ear buds if it were me.

Use a little velcro to stick the speaker in the ear holes and run any wires under the helmet padding. That way it can be removed for charging.

A speaker not designed to be a headset will sound far too loud in a helmet, also will be unlikely to fit very well.
