01. Sound Level Meter Settings. The sound meter must be set for the A-weighing scale and may be set for either slow or fast dynamic response. (3-18-22)
02. Exhaust Outlets. Tests must be made on each side of the OHV having an exhaust outlet. (3-18-22)
03. Location of the Microphone of the Sound Level Meter. (3-18-22)
a. The microphone of the sound level meter must be located twenty (20) inches - one-half (1/2) inch behind the exhaust. If there is more than one (1) exhaust outlet per side, the microphone of the sound level meter must be located with reference to the rear most outlet. (3-18-22)
b. The microphone of the sound level meter must be within one-half (1/2) inch of the height of the exhaust outlet. (3-18-22)
c. The microphone of the sound level meter must be at a forty-five (45) degree - ten (10) degree angle to the normal line of travel of the OHV. (3-18-22)
