Bandwidth QoS per IP / Host on PIX 515e

Device description:
Cisco PIX 515e URBUN
Pix version 7.1(2)
ASDM version 5.1(2)

Objective:
Give IP's 10.0.0.170 through 10.0.0.180 on the inside interface as much bandwidth as they need, then let all the other hosts on the inside interface use the bandwidth remaining.

Problem description:
10 of our host devices on the PIX inside interface each with a static IP (10.0.0.170 - 10.0.0.180) need to have priority bandwidth over all other hosts on the inside interface of the PIX. These devices are barix exstreamer units used for downloading internet radio streams. We use these as part of our radio station downlink sources. Currently when any other host on the inside interface downloads something (i.e. a PC downloading youtube video), said download hogs the bandwidth and the barix devices almost immediately stop, waiting for available bandwidth. For obvious reasons this is not desirable during live radio broadcasting since the program audio stops and we get "dead-air". Each barix device currently consumes ~64kbps constantly.

Commentary:
I use ASDM to access the PIX device. I've learned that QoS / Rate Limiting is supported by our PIX device. I found a configuration screen for QoS in ASDM, but have no clue as to how to add and configure for our needs.

Please provide easy to understand steps as how to do this in ASDM. Thank you.

I forgot to mention that the priority devices use TCP/IP and HTTP with varying ports.

I browsed through that document weeks before coming here with the question. Thanks, but that helps me 0%.

I am looking for an expert that can instruct me the procedure in ASDM, *not* CLI.

In ASDM I  think I go to Configuration>Security>Inside interface and then add a new service policy (providing a ton of options, at which point I get lost).

Again, thank you, but as my original question states, I need help doing this in ASDM.

Is this question outside the knowledge base of the cisco "experts" here or something? Come on guys, why is this going unanswered?

Here are 3 screen shots of what I've tried so far.

1. Didn't work.
2. Didn't work.
3. Worked, but was basically rate-limiting all hosts, when instead I am trying to give the "barix" group bandwidth priority and let the rest of the hosts on the interface compete for remaining bandwidth.

Please? Anyone?
