Decay spectra are presented which describe the control of normal modes of an enclosed sound field using active absorbers. The visualization techniques are introduced in the context of a resonant waveguide and extended to investigate the acoustics of a small reverberant room. Results demonstrate that active absorbers offer a practical solution to the problems introduced by discrete low-frequency modes.
