Multi speed 2 bath inline exhaust fan - Fan & Controls wiring help please...

Does anyone know how to do this? where to find the right fan / controls?

I'd like to find a quiet inline multiple speed (or variable speed?) high CFM remote exhaust fan for master and guest baths, located back to back. (probably 6" exhaust ducting...)

( my house is sealed pretty good / spray foam insulated / non vented attic and everyone likes long steamy showers... )

I would like it to operate in the following manner probably 3 speeds minimum.

speed 1 - timer switch located in master toilet stall

speed 2 - timer switch located in guest bath

speed 3 - timer switch located by master shower door.

(I might do some one time adjustment with duct baffles...)

I would appreciate any recommendations for fans, inlet duct sizing, timer switches and wiring. (as to the wiring, pictures and description by wire colors would be very helpful.) this is new construction, This fan would be on one 15 Amp circuit and I nave 14/2 and 14/3 Romex to work with... I'd also be interested in any low voltage / relay control options if anyone has some ideas in that direction.

We've used Nutone remote bath fans with good results. They are one speed, but since it's remote they are very quiet... you hardly hear anything when they are running.

Here's a link to some of their info.

Low voltage controls can be introduced into the system. You would need to post the specifics of how you wanted it to work.
