    what do you think my DB will be?

    I have two Infinity Perfect 12s in a dual bandpass box with the specs that Infinity recomends. They are powered by a 2000 watt amp. They are in a 1990 grand prix ste. I have a pioneer ph9300 deck with non fading sub preamps. They are 4V. 300 watt amp powering my Pioneer 6 x 9s. I have Pioneer 6 1/2s in my door. 5 1/4s in the dash, and a tweeter in each door. Thanks in advance guy!

    I've never tested it before so I dont really know how. How do I do it? How loud should the music be because I can turn it up to 35 out of 40 before distortion.

    Their limit is 130db on the high scale, and are off as much as 12dB on the lower end of the octaves. There are a few sites that have mapped out their non-linearities against a B&K meter to give a reference line for those using them for minor room acoustics.

    They are NOT eight dollars though - cheapest I've seen them is they have the analog one for 35.

    Maybe a local shop will let you test it out...if they have a mic.

    $200?? If you can find a competition quality meter for $200, I'll use the money I was going to spend on one and buy ten
