    I'm curious as to how much sound my bass setup puts out, as well as how loud my entire band is.. is there a way to build something to measure this? I assume that buying a meter would be expensive, but if not, where can i go for that? this is just a curiosity, so i can't afford to spend too much..
    thanks for any help

    Radio Shack used to sell a dB meter for around $50. I don't know if they still do or not.
