    SPL Meter

    Buying a Radioshack SPL meter (analog) this week and am looking for a cd/dvd to use with it to determin the hot spots in my living room that need dampening. What's the best cd/dvd to use with the SPL meter and where can I buy it?

    thanks,

    I like the Stryke

    http://www.stryke.com/testcds.htm

    Used primarily for bass, but contains the other frequencies too.

    Hi JayTee,

    Rives Test CD2 has two sets of test tones (among other stuff) recorded on it. One set is recorded flat to be used with a calibrated meter. the other set is a set of compensated test tones specifically for the radio shack SPL meter. Tho the RadioShack meter seems to be consistent ...it does have some non-linearities.

    Another nice forum to check out for some room talk The Acoustics Circle at AudioCircle.



    have fun!
