    Sound Meter

    hi, It was me asking about sound meters the other day. I had my test today and passed I bought a sound meter from maplins and put it the correct distance away, but it gave a much lower reading than what i got on the 1st test (113db). so i moved it closer until it had the same reading and then stuffed it with scoures untill it was bellow 101. probably not the best way to do it but i passed with a reading of about 97 db. now ive just gotta get regestration and other stuff sorted and im on the road (and ive gotta take a sound meter back to maplins coz it wasnt accurate enough ) thanx for everyones help BEN

    113 Dba!

    thanx for everyones help so far. I wish i knew not to put down 6000 revs. i dont know if there is anyway to let more people know. my examiner (really nice guy) told me straight away tht we would have a problem because of it. would you mind telling me what your first dBa reading was tim? ill try to get in contact with a nearby radio control club coz i really dont want to have to have a 3rd test! Thanx again for all your help. im starting to feel slightly less worried Ben

    113 Dba!

    hi, i have just failed my first sva test yesterday with my 2B. there are a few easy bits to sort out, but more woryingly i had a noise output of 113 dBa!. i have the standard two pipe exaust with 1.6 pinto. i had fit the supplementary baffle, but didn't put in any scouring pads before hand. also the engine wasn't running to well so i need to get it tuned. i am wondering if tunning and putting the pads in would bring it down to bellow 101 or if i need to do something else? Has anyone else had this problem? Also i would like to test the noise level before the next test so i dont fail again. does anyone know of anyway i can do this? thanx ben
