A Practical Guide to Acoustical Design of Control Rooms and Placement of Loudspeakers

Document Thumbnail

Control rooms work best when they are designed from the viewpoint of the loudspeaker. The walls should work as an extension of the loudspeaker, and the signal should reach the listener with minimal interfering first reflections from the room. The reverberation should be diffused and created by the opposite end of the room. Normal design faults are shown to break these rules.
