70v speaker help.

Hi all, sorry if this has been answered before.

I'm currently tasked to lower the volume of a few speakers in a commercial space. I have a limited knowledge of how CV systems are set up and I have already dropped down to the lowest wattage outputs on the transformers on these particular speakers, however the output is still too loud.

Turning down the main output on the amp isn't really an option because they want to keep the output of the main zones the same, and getting to each speaker to increase wattage via windings on each transformer isn't necessarily feasible.

Is there an option that I can do on the two problem speakers without making global adjustments? Impedance matching volume knobs my only option or could a rated power matched pot between transformer output and speaker work ok?

Sorry in advance from a CV distributed system newb.
