A meter manufacturer usually gives you a specification sheet that tells you how much current it takes to move the meter to it's highest reading.  The part of the meter that moves is called the meter movement.

A meter like that is gonna require some kind of circuit and without knowing the specs on it, it's gonna be kinda hard. You'll have to get more info on it.

It would appear to go between the amp and speaker?!?!? But you do need the current(or voltage, which ever it reads) rating for it to be remotely accurate.
