Question Volume control

Is there a way to separate front and rear volume controls so one control does not adjust the other? The SO likes listening to a higher volume than I .
Thanks,
Ron

Re: Volume control

I don't think you can do anything other than adjust the Front to Back Fade on the radio itself.

kinda hard to avoid as the speakers are pointing right at you.

Re: Volume control

Depending on which style connector you have that connects to the upper cord....these are your options.

The first one has a trapezoidal connector and the second has a half moon style.

Of course if she likes louder, you would have to adjust down from her level.

Re: Volume control

Not the speakers. I'm talking about the volume through the headsets.

+1 for this set up. I recently went from no headsets to J&M headsets. Knowing that the wife does not like it as loud as I do. I set her up with the adjustable cable, works great. Now i can blast my ears off and not hear (or get a gut check) from the pillion. Also aids in the "what" factor when I get off the bike!!!

Re: Volume control

Depnends on your interface (intercom) I guess. With the BMW intercom you can set the initial volume level of the front and rear to different levels. Of course, adjusting the volume by the handlebar or passenger controls will adjust both headsets.
