Please fill out the form below and we will provide you with a free room analysis. We will evaluate the room dimensions, reverberation time, and the direct and reflected paths.
Reverberation time is a tool used to evaluate the acoustics of spaces. Reverberation time is a measure of how long sound stays present within a space after it is made. More specifically, reverberation time is defined as the time required for the level of sound in a room to drop 60 dB after the signal is turned off. The preferred reverberation time for a space is dependent upon its physical volume, as well as its intended use.
Room dimensions are critical in providing a quality space. The size of the room will impact how well low frequency sound will be perceived and the ratio of the length to width to height will influence the distribution of sound (standing waves) in the space. Equal dimensions or even multiple dimensions result in standing waves – areas of high and low sound levels.
Direct and Reflected Paths
Reflections are beneficial when the distance of direct path and the reflected path are less than 55 feet. Reflections cause echoes, which reduces speech intelligibility, when the distance of direct path and the reflected path are more than 65 feet. Rear wall reflections are also undesirable because listeners hear sound coming from behind them.[contact-form-7 id=”478″ title=”Room Acoustics Form”]
