Based on the multi-functional needs, from the conference room to the cinema with Dolby Surround sound effects, we performed an analysis of the room’s acoustic response based on the model of a 3-D simulation, referenced on acoustic parameters according to ISO-3382, thus directing the choices of architectural design to obtain optimum acoustical conditions both on stage and in the audience. Design of the electroacoustic provides various control technologies for the equalization and a 6.1 Dolby Digital distribution of the amplified audio signal. In this contribution we present choices and design criteria, materials and audio devices used to obtain the final result, to underline the key role of architectural acoustics and electroacoustic integrated design.
