Members of our highly trained staff use a variety of audio test equipment to measure reverberation and other audio-impacting aspects of the space. We use a combination of sound generators, microphones, and computer programs to “map” the acoustical qualities of the room, and then we apply our education, certification and years of experience to provide guidance. We leverage computer aided design (CAD) packages to model and map the room, as well as “before” and “after” scenarios.
In a properly designed space for speech and lecture, we strive to have a reverberation time of 1 second. General purpose rooms can tolerate a 1.5 to 2 second reverb time, and a music hall might be between 2 and 3 seconds. If you have a “dual- or multi-purpose” room (imagine a school gymnasium that holds basketball/volleyball, major events like graduations, and several vocal concerts…) we can help you understand solutions that will enable you make informed decisions regarding investment.
Bad acoustical spaces can be corrected. We can provide an acoustical analysis of your space, and then recommend, design and install solutions that will mitigate the issue. We can offer a wide variety of corrections with complete installation and measured results.
