Question High spl measurements

I am trying to take some measurements of the maximum SPL output of my subwoofer. Problem is REW always shows clipping when setting amp gain anywhere near high power. Is there a method that will allow REW to tell me the max SPL output somewhat accurately?

DIY Mains, Oris 150 and Oris 250 horns, actively crossed with Ashly 4.8SP. QSC and Behringer pro amps. Integra DHC 9.9 Pre/Pro, Oppo BD-93 Blu Ray. Side Effects - Klipsch Pro Cinema, 4 LFE Subs - Full Marty DIY build. 7.1 setup, Projector - Panasonic PT-AE4000U, Dalite HP screen. HTPC for lossles .flac audio.

Well did you configure the Mic according to the Guide for what Windows you are running.. I would try turning down the gain of the Mic in Windows..

Check pages 24-25 of the REW Manual..

Thank you. I may have missed that portion of the manual.
