Could someone please explain the basic concept and virtues of spl metering?

Where does one purchase an SPL meter and how much can one expect to pay?

    OK first off radio shack has em for under 40 bucks.

    The SPL meter is used to setup your system.Basically it measures sound pressure from your speakers......or anything else you wanna test with it.

    SPL meters I feel are a nessary tool to setup a surround system.Doing it by ear is one way,using the meter I feel is the right way.
    DO a search in here on SPL meters.Alot of talk you will find.
    My personal quest is to save to world of bad audio, one thread at a time.
