Hey guys, I've been here before and people on here really know their stuff. I have a question about a speaker system I got a few years ago. It still works great and have no issues, but I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on how to add manual control to the system. The speaker system is either on or off, no way of changing the volume except through the OS. The system came with my Dell desktop and the keyboard has a wheel manual control. Now I've set up the speakers to both my desktop and my TV/Cable system via a switch. The Cable system volume is a little too loud for some channels, so I was wondering if I could buy a manual control to lower the volume. Thanks ahead if anyone has any ideas.

This is the website for the speaker system.

Those were designed for use with a computer at listening levels for computer use. Using them for a HT replacement won't cut it.
