Acoustical conditioning

Acoustical conditioning is used to meet people’s perception of the acoustical quality of a room when it is excited by a sound which is produced or reproduced inside the environment. This kind of work must be carried out in places such as concert halls, control and recording rooms, and also in working environments (hotels, meeting rooms) in order to achieve a certain acoustical comfort for the listeners’ well-being.

This is accomplished by measuring and modifying objective acoustical parameters such as reverberation times (RT60 and RT30), early decay time (EDT), intelligibility indexes (STI, RASTI) and clarity and definition parameters. After performing a third octaves or octaves frequency analysis of the values obtained from these parameters, it is possible to enhance and adjust the subjective acoustical parameters of the enclosure such as timbre, warmth, brilliance, echoes, spaciousness, etc.
