Default db meters

Does anyone know where I can get a db meter from "in Australia" that goes high around 160db? It doesnít have to be very accurate.
Thanks
Hayden

160dB ???

While I did my search for my SPLmeter, I found out most cheap type of meters (in Europe, RadioShack SPLmeter-alikes) are "Class 2", ranging from 50-126dB max. "Class 1" meters are for law enforcement and they range from 30-140dB. The last type starts from 300-400Ä and up.

I haven't found any meter capable over 140dB, let allone an affordable one.

Try to get an RS-alike, and take more distance till you are in range. Then add +6dB for every 1/2 distance from your car.

Not sure if you have dealers for Audio Control gear on your side of the world, but their Epic-160 in-dash processor has a built in SPL meter capable of 160db.

Click here to see it.
