AES-X219 Method of measurement for frequency and impulse response of sound systems in auditoria has been initiated and assigned to AESSC Working Group SC-04-08.
The project is scoped to specify a method of measurement for frequency and impulse response of sound systems in auditoria. The output intent is a standard.
The audience experience of sound reproduced through loudspeakers in an auditorium can vary greatly. In many applications where sound is reproduced in auditoria, a predictable performance is valued. While a number of different electro-acoustic and acoustic parameters contribute to this experience, a standard method of measuring the frequency & impulse response of the sound as presented to the audience by the loudspeaker system(s) will be a necessary part of any more general solution.
