a-scale meaning


In sound-level meters, a weighting network, widely used to measure the noise levels in buildings or communities. The A-scale provides meter readings that correlate better with subjective judgments of noise than do readings of sound pressure levels (which are also taken with a sound level meter, but without a weighting network).
