There’s no need to be ‘that guy’ who feels the need to inflict his tunes on the whole lake when just heading to the flat water.)
      I do the same, I only use the tower speakers when I'm towing someone.

      I only use the auto volume adjust when I'm pulling people as well. I simply turn on auto volume adjust in the Murphy user settings as part of setting up for surfing or wakeboarding. Then I turn it back off when I'm changing all the settings to head back to the dock. But in the case of surfing in particular, we like the volume turned down as we turn around to pick-up the surfer. That way we don't blast everyone on their docks as we turn around and we can talk in the boat. The auto volume adjust automates that for the large number of turn arounds and pickups. Certainly worth the few clicks to turn it on and off in the Murphy screen. I also use different auto volume setting for Surf vs Wakeboard.

      What would be super nice, is if the auto-volume settings were in the profiles.

        No, I left the billet aluminum alone (no paint), but the picture was from when I originally installed it. I was able to just barely get the mounting screws into the dash material on the fusion deck, but wasn’t comfortable that they’d be secure long term. The pic I took was from before I added the aluminum ring.

        The black pocket you see on the right is actually the dash fiberglass. The aluminum faceplate for the remote comes with a separator panel that keeps items placed in that area from getting lost behind the remote. It works really well.
