Windows 7: Limit Sound Output

Limit Sound Output

I was wondering if there was a way to limit the master volume output. My teenager's do not understand that there are volume setting other than Max. I don't want to totally disable the sound just limit how loud it gets when they turn it up.

Thanks.

I offered the suggestion in all seriousness as there is no way I know of to limit the settings to a maximum. Having had teenagers myself I am aware of their penchant for music at maximum volume. Even if it could be limited, I would suggest that they would quickly find a way around it.

Did you find a way to do this? Very interested, as I would like to keep my new speakers from being blown out.
