    Here are the schematics of the old analog Radio Shack SPL meter (33-2050) and the newer digital readout meter (33-2055). They both show woefully inadequate coupling capacitors. Upping these should help the performance of this meter by an order of magnitude.

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    Being UK based means getting a Radio Shack SPL meter wasn't easy - I eventually came across a vendor (Keene Retail) selling them on Amazon.co.uk. When I read through the order after I'd ordered it, it had the model number as 33-099. Looking back in here: Read more...
