    Does Elevation Affect TL Scores?

    Hey guys I was just thinking the other day about SPL comps and how elevation would affect it... Its measuring pressure so I would find it really hard to believe that you could meter the same at see level as appose to say where I live... Diesel performance is my other hobby so I know in racing for instance as well as many of you know to get a lower time up here in the mountains is hard as hell cuz of this... So does it affect anything and if so how?

    Yes. More space physically between particles in the air = harder to compress.

    Re: Does Elevation Affect TL Scores?

    the temperature and humidity have a big roll so i dont see why elevation wouldnt do the same.

    I would only think it would be a couple tenths to a db at most. But you never know



    still have alot of stuff i need to invest in

    so sayy... having the air conditioning running full blown and maybe a few sprits from a spray bottle before a run could increase your TL score?
