Limiting volume on a Denon amp?

Question

Wish-I-Were-Fishn

The guys in my shop are always cranking the volume to high on the shop stereo. Is there a way to put some sort of adjustable resistor on each speaker to limit the volume? Anything greater then 25% ends up being to loud and I'm tired of turning it down all the time.

Install a hidden rheostat, or get a cheap assortment of resistors from radio shack or online and experiment with what works at keeping the max volume at an acceptable level to make it more permanent and install it in-line. The rheostat would obviously be easily adjustable if it gets found.

OR let them know you will no longer tolerate the volume being pushed past a certain level. I know every shop I've worked in that was the case. At one place a couple people pushed their luck and ruined it for everyone. If you're the boss, you should have the last word.

I would need a rheostat on each speaker line, correct? Was thinking of installing up on the speakers where they couldn't get at them.

Yup, install them on one wire going to each speaker.

Lock the receiver in a room or cabinet (proper ventilation of course).

Look in the Options area under Volume Control. I don't know if it's % or absolute numbers but, on mine you can limit volume output but, the selections are only Off, 61,71 and 81..as far as I can see.

Mine also has a power on volume preset so, when the unit is turned on, the volume is already set. That option, on mine, is fully adjustable. Set it and tell them, don't touch!

      Del, No I did not troll the spinners and Raps at the same time. I kept switching rigs just to see what would work. I used a 1-1/2 oz. bell sinker on the 3-way rigs and a 2 oz. bottom bouncer with the spinners. Cliff

      Got 8 nice keeps today in 26 to 36 feet of water in Big Bay from 8:30- almost noon , plus one throw back dink . Six keeps on jig n tiny shiner , and two keeps on jig and small leeches. 1/8 oz jigs . The small shiners were trapped by us .. I pretty much fish a jig all summer long . Although I do realize other methods do have there times out there, I just like jigs , and usually always manage fish on them with either a leech , crawler piece , or a minnow ..

      Mother Nature sure has had it in for you the past week, she's making you hone your fish catching skills for sure. Good luck the remainder of your stay Jeff.

      You didn't troll them at the same time, right?   How much weight were you using?

      The rusties hadn't gotten to wakemup or Norwegian bays yet, but they are through oak narrows and on the march, from what the DNR said last summer.   I've got my trap waiting. I haven't seen anyone have much success fishing walleye on merry go round for years (and that includes me).   It is like the reef bite pretty much vanished some years back.    But who knows, it could come back if we get a couple good year classes of smaller fish.    The area around the little island (two little islands) where the osprey nest was, to the east of goodwill island, used to be good also but hasn't done much last few years.   Maybe this is the year...

      It may or may not. Everything i have read is the initial surge from starting it up is close to 2600 watts. And after that it runs at 1600.

      I never have.  Waded in when the kids were swimming.  Nice sunfish and I hear a good bass lake.  A person could portage a boat in there if it weren't too heavy.  I've never stayed there but can see people down at the beach when I fish there.

      On Island lake, I typically had luck fishing smallies near Rice Lake Road. Then the chain of islands east of the bridge has a good reef studded with boulders, moderate side rocks, and timber. Depending on the wind those islands can be good for bass or walleye. Use to use creature baits and crawdads to fish thoroughly.   Gone Out Fishin

      It’s not totally remote but I found an app for my phone called “all stays” and it has filter settings and you can find small camp sites where your not surrounded by 30’ rigs. So you don’t feel like your camping on a sidewalk in Chicago.  I found the county park ones are nice without driving 4+ hours away.
