    in-dash spl meter?

    I dont know if they make this or if it will be availble or anything, but is there any device that will measure SPL that you could mount somewhere in your dash or something? Something compact somewhat that is efficient. Just a thought...

    Audiocontrol Epic150 measurse up to 150dB's.




    Is this not a reasonable place to park?

    A couple of my friends have these...it measures over 150db's but becomes very unaccurate the higher you go.

    Is it worth the price do you think or no? I am interested in them but dont really know anythign about them. You say they are unaccurate the higher up you go; do you know by how much? 1db off? 2db off?

    Are they worth it, meh...I'm still unsure and undecided...I have to borrow my friends and hook er' up sometime to see if it makes that much of a difference. It is cool that it does read your SPL though. Yeah, 1-5 db's would be pretty much the range...it fluctuates. A friend hit 152db at a comp with a legit. mic, and it was 154 on the Epic150...its not that far off, just dont tell your friends what your measured with

    Dumps a truckload of bass on your woofers, SPL meter is wicked hot, easy setup, but you will lose some upper bass frequencies
