Need advice

Recommended Posts

First try to find an app on your iPhone.  If that meets your needs, then great.  Second try the ole Radio Shack meter.

iPhone apps are a joke for actual spl. They do sell a mic that can be plugged in to your phone. Don't know how good it is. Radio shack one will be better. I use an omnimic setup. Problem with the phone is you can't check low frequency spl accurately at all. Radio shack one you can.

The Radio Shack meter is a good one.  I've had one for years and set up several HT's with it.

I got a Radio Shack meter on clearance at a store that was closing (redundant).  It works fine and was a bargain.

Another recommendation for the Radio Shack meter.  Really no need to spend any more.

Need some recommendations for an spl meter

The inexpensive ones are O.K. for measuring overall SPL, but no good for measuring frequency response.  Even though some compensation tables/charts are available for the RS meter,  the various ones out there contradict each other. 

 

To measure frequency response, it's best to go to the REW (room eq wizard) site and download it.   It's FREE, a real public service.  You will need a calibrated measurement microphone (~~ $100).  You enter the calibration into REW, then run REW.

Galaxy Audio is about the best you can do without breaking the bank. The analog Rat Shack is okay if you can still find it.

Jay L, hadn't seen you around in a while. Rumor was that you went to work for Apple or the NSA or something.
