Interested in Language
1)I could not find the meaning of "speak low" in the dictionaries, does it have the same meaning of "lower the voice" or "speak softly"?
2) I saw a notice in a ferry, it is "Be considerate, please tone down the voice". Is there any difference with "Lower your voice"?

This doesn't sound very natural to me.
"Be considerate, please keep your voice down".
"Be considerate, please talk quietly".
