Measuring dBs with a DMM? :crazy: i havent seen one with a SPL readout, but sit in there and play each individual frequency, whichever is loudest is gonna be close to what you are looking for

ya thats what im trying to do, im just not sure if there's anything extra i need for my dmm in order to do that. not looking to measure spl, just finding which frequency peaks higher.....
