A member of my household often sets the volume on his Mac too loud, annoying the rest of the family. We're all getting tired of asking him to turn it down.

Is there any way to set a maximum volume level that can't be exceeded without administrator-level access?

There's a freeware app Volimiter that'll do this. The posted version seems to be for Tiger, so if you're using Leopard / Snow Leopard YMMV.

As it happens, the offender's machine is currently running Tiger, so this may be perfect. – Kristopher Johnson Dec 13 '09 at 15:50
