Electronics GURU Needed: VHF Radio External Speaker too Loud
Hey electronics guru's. I've got a cheap-o Uniden Solara DSC 25-Watt Full-Featured Fixed Mount VHF Marine Radio that I recently installed on my 27 ft Catalina, Airborne. So I hooked the external speaker inputs and regardless of where the volume knob is the speaker is REALLY LOUD. Sometimes when there's a distant conversation that comes in just as static it's really annoying. I want to install some kind of potentiometer (variable volume control) to reduce the loudness but I'm not sure how to proceed. I'm a pretty technical guy and I can repair electronics but I've never tried to build. I live near the Fry's Electronics in the Seattle are and there's a radio shack nearby. I can go buy some random small value potentiometer but would like some feedback on where to begin.
Does anyone know of a good way to add variable volume to my radio setup?
