Ok, I now have a stereo on a boat and would like to see if there is an aftermarket device that will increase the volume as engine increases. I know motorcycles with helment intercomes have this device so why not boats? Any one have a link?

I would pay BIG money for a device like you described. The speed sensitive volume control in my new GMC is great and it really makes me want one for my boat.

Would you need a paddle wheel or would it be rpm based...j/k.

There are head units that do this. I think Kenwood does but it might be another brand as well.

basically what happens, is that it is either preprogrammed into the head unit, or a very small microphone comes with it, and you can set the sensitivity and it will adjust accordingly. they already have that in the chrysler convertables, when the top goes down, the volume gets bumped up, and it re-equalizes it (bass goes up a lot, the mid also gets a little boost).

There is something that does that. I don't know if it's the head unit or a separate device, but I know it exists (for cars). Can't remember whether it gets its info from the speedo, tach, or ambient noise level. I'll see if I can dig up some info.

It would be cool to have.

My dad has a boxster with that bose audiopilot in it. it's a cool feature, but personally, i'm one of those who doesn't like to have computers control stuff like that for me. Same thing with automatic door locks on cars.

AudioPilot - Totally Cool.
