    What meter should I get?

    I have 2 fluke t5-600's (construction) I have one. dad just found another somehow...

    anyways, I tried metering my RCA output on a line driver and it did nothing.

    What is the cheapest meter I can use to set gains, meter rca voltage, etc, etc.

    I also have some crappy $10 flip book mete from home depot somewhere I think.



    dnx 6160 - saz1500d v1 - sony xm 4045 - stock tweets - no decent sub for now

    Did you use a 50 Hz sine wave? If its a true rms meter you can use higher frequencies for highs amps but needs to be a sine wave.
