Today, there is a need to know just how loud your surroundings really are. The CM-80 is an affordable IEC 651 TYPE 2 & ANSI S1.4 TYPE 2 SPL meter. The CHECK MATES are inexpensive tools that everybody working in loud environments should own. Windscreen and protective case are included with the CHECK MATE models.

The CHECK MATE series SPL (Sound Pressure Level) meters, first introduced in early 2003, allow musicians, sound contractors, and others to measure SPL in decibels (dB). A decibel is defined as the unit for measuring relative loudness of a sound. We have expanded our line from one CHECK MATE SPL Meter to four products in the category. The company has sold thousands of units to working musicians, DJs, police departments, sound contractors, racetracks, etc.

The CM-80 is the latest in the line of Galaxy Audio SPL Meters. The CM-80 measures sound pressure levels in real time, has a MAX/MIN hold function, power save, and has an automatic light detection that will turn the blacklight on when environmental light is inadequate. The CM-80 audio SPL meter comes with a windscreen.
