green : -3 db
red: +4db

A red LED at +4 sounds pretty useless. I'd find out what level your mic pre starts clipping at, and make that your red LED. I'd probably go with +4 (or nominal) for your yellow LED, and make the green one a "signal present" LED that hits at maybe -20.
I use the LA2a on very hot signals like lead vocal.

Also, you need to specify peak or RMS/average. Those numbers sound pretty laughable as peak numbers, and you need to be aware of how your detector is working, and what it's giving you.
