    SPL Meters

    I was wondering where and how much would a meter cost just for testing? It don't have to be a TL or AC just a meter that is close and reliable for testing.

    Thanks

    I know that Radioshack sells one for about $50. But its a piece of crap. If you want to do serious testing a TL is one of the best investments that a SPL competitor can make

    The best investment

    The best $600 you'll ever put into your SPL work...by far. Otherwise, you're blind and in the dark.

    But if you get any other meter you wont have a good idea of what you will hit at a comp.

    Re: SPL Meters

    doesn't audiocontrol make like an epic or epicenter thing where it has a built in meter? the way i read the original post is that is not a competition vehicle and just looking for a good idea of what he's hitting?

    by the way the termlab and the ac 190 will do jsut fine i prefer the termlab.
    You truly are a phucking idiot. Things in people's signatures...ESPECIALLY quotes...are to make fun...be sarcastic...etc...etc...etc. But apparently you are too dense to recognize this.
