Hi All,
I tried doing a search on this but was unsuccessful.

Is there a means of measuring the effectiveness of sound proofing (pre and post test)?
What type of equipment would be best (cost effective) to make measurement?
Is there a test "track" to use? (pink noise?)

I do have a db meter but have to double check the accuracy and low range.

Apparently my ability to search effectively was lacking..... must be tired

The one thread has comments that a db meter would not be a good measuring tool.
Are there any suggestions on how a person could go about it?
