    How do I measure frequency? What tools do I use? I did a search on "measure frequency" and noting came up. This must have been discussed before.
    Thanks for the help.

    Ummmm... what kind of frequency would you like to measure?

    - A speaker's anechoic frequency response?
    - An in-room frequency response? low frequency or full range?
    - The frequency content of a music/movie soundtrack?

    Jeremy already covered the last one...

    Thanks Jeremy, that is perfect.


    Rob, I am looking for the f content of music/movies and the in-room f response of my system. I have a some test tones from a Rat Shack disk and some other calibration DVD's. I guess I will have to invest in a decent mic for my computer. As for my speakers anechoic frequency response, I would rather invest my money in my theater than in a anechoic chamber. It is hard to invite a bunch of friends over to hang out in your "Home Anechoic Chamber." Makes for a dull evening.
