Well, I'm getting an advanced replacement from Velodyne and then sending back the damaged one. Hopefully things will work out good with this one
I also found a good ole' Realistic (radio shack) SPL meter on ebay for $21.50 shipped, so I will return the new one that cost me almost $60...I am also interest in the older one because I see they have calibratiIon files and all for that SPL meter on the RE W site...so I might play around with that too
The one I got is the digital one, I think the analog one has some calibration issues from what I have read....but things are still sounding good so far, even though I'm down to one sub again.
Thanks again for the help, I'll let you know if I have any issues when the new one arrives.
