I'm curious if you've found any SPL weightings that make everyone happy?

Hello @Michael Umile
SPL weightings like A-weighting  is widely used and accepted, it's important to consider the specific requirements of the application, relevant regulations, and the characteristics of the sound being measured when selecting an appropriate weighting.
Basically A,C or Z SPL weighting are acceptable based on engineer years of reference and expertise in sound perception which can vary among individuals.
