Loading Audio W/ AS

Okay I am working on an intro for a client and I created some custom audio for the project. I am using flash 8 and it is keeping the file size really low, around 22K, but if I import the audio, even if it just sits in the library, it bumps the file size up to 328K. I didn’t know if there was a faster way to get the audio to load, or if there was a smaller file size that i could use.

I know you can attach audio with actionscript but i can’t remember what the exact code is…

var d:Sound = new Sound("dance");


But even if the audio is not on the stage the file is still huge?

Does anyone know a better way to do this so I can keep my files low.
