Sound meter

Question : WHAT is the equipment used to measure the noise level in a vehicle's cabin ?

Can it be purchased locally and what is the price range ?

Answer : The equipment used is a sound meter and can be purchased from most shops selling scientific equipment.

Having got the equipment, you must know how to use it and the different standards and methods used for the measurement of sound, both inside and outside the vehicle.

Unless you are going to be doing comparison tests, I do not see what you can really do with the equipment.

Prices can range from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand, depending on the accuracy needed and the accessories wanted.
