    My kids play their music through the computer inbuilt speaker as it doesn't have stereo speakers. However they play it far too loud and I'm concerned that they'll do permanent damage to the speaker. is there a way I can reduce the maximum volume that they can play music at, that they cannot adjust? Perhaps a command line in the Registry or elsewhere?
    Thanks for your help.

    If nobody has a programable solution you could fit a two-resistor attenuator ahead of the speaker. The resistor values should be chosen to give an input impedance equal to the nominal impedance of the speaker when the attenuator is loaded by the speaker. I suggest you start with around 6dB attenuation.

    Can you buy them some cheap speakers? If not it's a 10 ohm resister in series with the speaker, but it needs to be at least a 1 watt resistor - you don't want the resistor to go up in smoke.

    cheers, Paul
