    term-labs

    Any cheaper options? Don't need to be spot on accurate, within a few DBs would be nice.

    I can't spend $600 on a term-lab, I can't borrow one, only one I know of in town is at the only local shop, and they said I can't use it unless it's during the DBdrag.. that's summer, I'm trying to get geared up for it before then. Looked at several cheaper options online, however, most of them peaked at 130db..

    Any suggestions besides start stacking bills?

    Probably a few options if you just want to be accurate enough to be within a few db's.
    I think id get an spl lab one if i was looking for something besides the tl.

    Re: term-labs

    SPL Labs would be my suggestion. We've played with one at the shop against the Termlab and it was pretty close.

    Gotta pay to play. I make a little more than you and look at the $hit I got. Just gotta catch deals. I'd pay 350 new for that though

    Re: term-labs

    I could afford one a month out, but I'm just a very impaient guy, I am only getting older. I just bought $230 worth of wire, a new SA-12, fuses, fuse holders. and 3 sheets of MDF.

    I guess it could be worse.
