Accurate SPLs, displays instantly.

Every band needs an SPL meter. You want to make sure you are in compliance with local ordinances concerning sound levels for outdoor events, parties and the like. You also want to have one on hand to prove to someone challenging you that you indeed are within code. You additionally want to ensure that your rehearsals are conducted at safe volumes for the future of your hearing. You may also need to make sure that the speakers in your recording environment are adjusted to all be at the same volume. Or you may need to adjust your subwoofer volume relative to the other speakers. The DSM-1X is the perfect choice for accurately measuring sound pressure levels with enough flexibility to be used in many different situations.
