You could get an expansion kit.
But I recommend biting the bullet and converting to metric.
A 0-100 scale will be louder anyhow.
And for those that are trying to save greenhouse gases, a 0-10 scale will reduce power consumption.
You should be able to get stick-on scales for hard-panels & displays.
For digital scales, contact the manufacturer for a firmware update.
Ask for the ghetto-blaster or gas-retentive version as desired (0-100 or 0-10 respectively).
BTW - for hippy-style musicians, you can probably get the 0-11 firmware - it still helps save the planet, but gives you that extra bit of volume.

It really amazes me with how important this is to some customers.  Most of my customers.  Years ago i had a used Alpine deck for sale, a potential customer asked me how high does the volume go.  I told him that the gain on his amplifier would determine how loud it would go.  He proceeded to explain the question a little better.  I answered "it counts up to 33"  His boy said "Man don't buy that one, that JVC goes up to 50."  I lost that sale that day.  Just yesterday a similar situation occured, two guys came in looking at double din dvd/monitor units.  They were real interested in the pioneer avhp-3200dvd.  He asked me if I could turn the speakers off, I did, he then began spinning the volume knob, when it got to 51, he stopped and looked at his buddy.  Then continued up to 60.  At that point he stopped and said he wanted it.

That reminds me of my stupid Piazza Man - he used to cut the pizza into 6 pieces despite knowing how hungry I was. He now cuts it into 8 pieces if I'm hungry.
I agree with you Idiot. It's just a case of educating the ignorant.
