A solution for constructing a small rehearsal hall, the acoustics of which resembles the stage of a large concert hall is presented. The implemented system was evaluated both objectively with measurements and subjectively by collecting feedback from professional musicians. The subjective opinions were very positive and encouraging and the main objective was achieved. The electroacoustically enhanced rehearsal space sounded like a much bigger hall, although the sound pressure level increased less than one decibel. The presented solution is applicable in all spaces, which are not very reverberant by nature and where the height of the room is at least twice the standard room height.
