When not properly designed, large halls, theaters, churches, and meeting rooms can exhibit a variety of acoustical problems, including echoing, booming, and high ambient noise levels. Many of these problems can be predicted and measured through reverberation time studies, which establish sound decay time in an enclosed area.
Desirable reverberation time allows frequency components to grow and decay at rates that support high speech intelligibility and the rich enjoyment of music.
Acoustician performs Room Acoustics Studies that identify and quantify reverberation time problems, and recommends appropriate structural modifications to obtain optimal sound absorption, reflection, and diffusion rates.
