Sound enhancement systems are becoming more and more popular even in very sophisticated concert halls. Especially in places with some acoustics deficiencies, musicians and concert-goers have accepted that kind of solution as very natural sounding and of great possibilities to easily obtain variable acoustics in rooms. On the market, there are some sound enhancement commercial systems, with similar acoustical parameters. Choosing the best one, for defined application, is possible only on the basis of properly designed listening tests. In the paper subjective listening tests of two sound enhancement systems installed in the same room are presented. On the basis of listeners’ evaluation, the quality of stage acoustics, naturalness, and spaciousness of sound created by systems were analyzed.
