    I would like to use a small passive speaker as a monitor connected to my
    existing keyboard amp speakers, what would I need to insert in the lead so
    that I could alter the volume

    Thanks

    Is this for gigs? Why not position your main speakers so you can
    hear them? If you set speakers back a bit, not only can you hear,
    you'll also turn them down a bit. Good for you, good for the
    audience.

    Many times I've played a dirty trick. You turn the guitar or bass
    speaker so that it's pointing right at the player's head. "It's too
    loud!" they complain. "Yes, isn't it" I reply :)

    Sometimes they just grin. Then you're REALLY in trouble :)

    Hi yes it is for gigs and maybe I diddn't explain correcty, I play all sorts
    of weird shaped small bars that involve having to put speakers in all sorts
    of positions, I have seen for sale wedge shaped passive monitors with volume
    knobs on, I have a few spare speakers and cabs and am trying to find out
    just what is inside the commercial ones so I can knock some of my own up
