T12 - ACOUSTICS OF LARGE ROOMS: DOES SIZE MATTER?
Kurt Graffy, ArupAcoustics - San Francisco, CA, USA
A tutorial for those curious about sound in big rooms and not afraid to admit it. So if acoustics is like playing pool at 1130 ft/s, what happens if somebody stretches the table to be larger or shaped differently? If we consider rooms to be a form of acoustic energy storage cell, do their charge/discharge rates differ as room size changes? Do we care? Or for that matter, what, in fact, is a big room? What would Schroeder say? Will the reverberant level help straighten things out? Is the mean free path ever truly free, or ever really mean? Come and find out, no one will be turned away.
