Thanks I'll try that, I had put a --scale in my conf file but it didn't seem
to do anything, I moved it after the --preset as you have it so we'll see if
the --highpass works, then scale should as well, but perhaps it is placement
specific, I'm sure being influenced by the --preset.

I use the following line in rpt.conf for the stream.

outstreamcmd=/bin/sh,-c,/usr/bin/lame --preset cbr 24 --highpass 0.2
-r -m m -s 8 --bitwidth 16 - -  | /usr/bin/ezstream -c

By adding --scale n, where n is a number less than 1 you should be
able to lower the level,  I haven't tried this but it should work.

outstreamcmd=/bin/sh,-c,/usr/bin/lame --preset cbr 24 --scale 0.8
--highpass 0.2 -r -m m -s 8 --bitwidth 16 - -  | /usr/bin/ezstream -c

For reference:
