Hey guys ! . I'm planning on doing some car audio installs & was thinking about getting some equipment like a Multimeter , Spectrum Analyzer & also a SPL/DB meter (to get an idea of what loud really measures up on a scale) .

I have checked the Audiocontrol website & they have a very good SPL meter only thing its $1500 OMG ! retail on some sites .

I then checked Radioshack whose prices seem more reasonable for the DIYer .
What i need to know is that $49.95 spl meter (i know it 'only' goes up to 126db)any good ? & does it cover freq ranges of 20hz-20ghz ? (as some meters from other companies only measure higher freqs). Any of you ever used it ?

Also i checked & they have 2 reasonably priced - Any good ?

Spectrum Analyzer - difficult to locate even with . Can anybody direct me to a good 1 ?

Multimeter - RadioShack has 7 models - which is the best for car audio use ?

Thanks in advance .....

i doubt you need a spectrum analyzer for car audio...especially if you only plan to do "some" installs..
if you go OMG over a 1500 buck meter id hate to see what you would do when you see the prices on a decent or even crappy spectrum analyzer....
