    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    I have an older (first gen?) Radio Shack SPL meter which has, and is, serving me well. I'm about to embark on setting up my sub via my new BFD 1124P/REW and have become acutely aware of the need for a calibration curve for the RS meter. Problem is I have not been able to find any info on my...

  10. Radio Shack SPL Meter may be gone!

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    Saw a post on another forum that the Radio Shack analog meter is discontinued. Checked the RS and it only shows the digital model. Don't know what this means, but thought I'd give a heads up in case anyone needs to grab a left over from a local store.

    Saw an ad in the weekend paper from Rat Shack. They have a TiVo, two tuner deal for $75.00 with a one year subscription. Good deal? Sound too good to be true? Opinions Please.

  16. Home Theater Shack Fantasy Football?

    Chat Box SWAMP
    I'd like to gauge the interest of members here in starting our own fantasy football league. Over the years I have found 10 teams to be the ideal, so I'd really only be interested if we could get 10. I like to use Yahoo's FF with a live draft. Here is the point system I like to use - I feel it...
