Room Acoustical Parameters in Small Rooms

Document Thumbnail

While there has been great progress in inventing complex algorithms to evaluate room acoustics of large spaces, simple statistical models remain attractive because they can describe the space with a few parameters. This paper explores how Barron’s model can be used to investigate the early and late energy parameters in small shoebox shaped rooms, which place additional burdens on the model. Measurements and simulations for three small rooms without furnishings were used to evaluate this simple model. Errors that were only a few dB for both reflected energy and early reflected sound when averaged across a room in the 250 Hz to 2 kHz frequency range. The model may be useful for studying the influence of parameters such as room volume, source-receiver distance, as well as microphone and loudspeaker directivity.
