You go to a competition or somethin and they put a sensor or mic in your car to measure the SPL. Most people play a single tone or "burp" to get the highest SPL.

Radio shack carries some cheap little db meters....but they aren't amazingly accurate and can only read up to like 126db (most ppl will easily exceed that #). For the competition style.....yes, they are very expensive. Like, something to not even consider unless you plan on competing.
