How much do one of those meters cost? I'll pick one up today and post results if the thing isn't too expensive.

Soundboy posted a reply to my WTB ad in the for sale forum, he said that some local radioshacks are having a sale on the old analog spl meters for ~$15. I couldn't find any at any of my local radioshacks. So went for a digital one, which is $50. There is a new analog one that goes for $40.

Quite convenient. Ever since I got my Grace 901 amp, I was really afraid of hearing damage with such a powerful amp. Now with this spl meter at hand, I don't have to anymore

(I will always check to make sure the sound is below 75db).

Plenty loud - 85 to 95 dB max. But only for max. 1 -2 h a day, and not every day.

Greetings from Hannover!

You mind the transients, now. They might just surprise you.
