Looks like we've got a useful suggestion followed by some self promotion.
I used the onboard speaker already inside Billy Bass which nicely integrates, but I'm not super familiar with amplifiers. Would a low power amp with the same speaker make a difference?

This project is gorgeous, very well done!
Sweet! Updating the Thing Shadow by voice is the huge bulk of the work. If you just pasted my code then you still have a couple values to change in the aws_iot_config.h file, which are all surrounded by <these braces>.
Updating those values might fix it for you! If it does, that's great.
Regardless, there still should be some Serial output telling you registration failed. So if it still isn't working, I'd suggest trying some simple Arduino sketches from their examples to confirm the Yun is working properly. Maybe a simple sketch for printing that just says "I am here". Serial printing is your friend and may have some useful hints toward what is going wrong.
