What exactly is it?? I know it is a meter but what makes it so good (or bad if you are using it..lol)???? Just cerious b/c in the future if I ever got the money i would love to buy one so I can host little mini drags at my house and stuff. Also want it to help me find the best setup for my stuff.

The current Termlab is a sensor unlike the LinearX, AC's, and classic Termlab which are all mic's. I think its all about preferance when it comes to the older ones. But, the sensor is the official tool for measuring SPL in DbDrag, and some other sanctioning bodies are now adopting it. The sensor reads considerably lower #'s and is looked upon negetive by some and positive by others, I believe they made the swap b/c its more accurate. The one I bought about a month ago came w/ 2 mics, a computer w/ box building program and a bunch of other stuff its about .2's off of the AC mic USACi uses here.

To directly answer your question its one of the most accurate ways to measure SPL. I like it because there isnt any guess work or doubt that was the highest # I could have put up at a comp.

 
Also to what matt said, its the most accurate meter no matter what temperture it is outside. Some mics, would give u different readings depending on the climate outside. For instance ive heard of someone going from 155 with the weather nice and sunny down to 150 with it raining, but then ive also heard of it going from 150 while raining up to 155 while sunny. So basically the Term Lab sensor is the best because no matter what the temperture is outside its going to read the same. Plus its alot easier to assemble the sensor than the mic lol..... 2 little sticky clamps and bam its on. Although u will get lower numbers than the other mic, you will constantly have the same number time after time.

 
the best part about the new termlab is consistancy. Whether the weather is different, altitude, barometric pressure, ect. You can go to a Meca, db drag, usaci or nspl show and know you are going to do the same numbers. Also there is no need for lane choice now either b/c both lanes in db drag will be the same. Where the old mics have diaphrams in them that can be spiked after time or by a huge number the new sensor will not.

 
I was looking at the kit for 600.00 I thought it was just the software and a new Mic, all you need is a Laptop or some PC with a USB port....

Is this not the new mic, but a older model?

If ur looking at the one with the flashing new sign that is the new sensor. Inhuman is wrong, and i for a fact u can get the new sensors for 600 as someone i know already bought one.

 
Is there any other meters out there, maybe a little cheaper?
If u want correct and accurate... no.... You can look on termpro.com's marketplace and see if theres any there. Ebay.... but the new TL sensor is the only thing worth metering on now.

While 600 beaners is a lot of cash, its not that bad for the TL (software and MIC) setup when you compare it to the others...

With this you know its accurate....

Anytime you post a score 3-6 people are going to want to debate... Post it saying, I scored XXX.xx on the new TL and there won't be any questions...
