Can one limit the volume range of the 8240?

I'd like to be able to put an upper limit on the volume range of my 8240s (volume controlled at my computer through GLM). I want to be able to set the volume control to never go above -30db. Is this possible somehow?

Hi,

There's no direct setting for maximum volume limit but there's a workaround. Go to Acoustic Settings Editor and set each speaker's level to -30 dB (minimum) (if AutoCal has already adjusted the level down, let's say left speaker is -1.5 dB and right speaker is 0 dB, then adjust left speaker to -28.5 dB and right speaker to -30 dB, so that the channel balance stays the same). Save settings. Now when you adjust the master level fader to 0 dB, the effective maximum level is -30 dB.
