Is there anything that can be bought to add to the factory sound system on a 17’ s238 that enables you to set volume zones for the tower and hull separately like the new stereos have with out upgrading the entire system? Had a baby back in October and still want to blast the music for the rider but not be so loud for my daughter.....

As long as all the speakers are powered by external amps, then head unit FADE can be used as crude zone control. The next better options is the Roswell dual-zone knob. Best option, A Wet Sounds zone controller. You could go with the 3 zone WS-420SQ or the 4 zone WS-220BT.

The Wetsounds 220 is legit best zone control out there IMO.

For going cheap, Roswell has a 2 zone control knob for $40.

Yes, the knob alone is $40, but you need three 2-chnl RCA cables to make it work. If these end up being long runs, quality RCAs are not cheap. if you use the Roswell 5m 6-chnl RCA, you are creeping into the $100 range. 

The other down side is, you are taking a single pre-amp head unit output, and cutting it in half through the switch out to each amp. Depending on the system amp goals, this can reduce output or result in high gain levels at the amps. Adding a line driver absolutely addresses this, but add another $100. At this point, you are now getting close to the price range of a WS-420SQ. Now you get master volume and a dual 4-band EQ PLUS sub level volume.

Don’t forget the loud mic..... who doesn’t love that when the lake lice come to close to your rider.
