T12 - Acoustic Enhancement Systems

Ben Kok, BEN KOK - acoustic consulting - Uden, The Netherlands

Acoustic enhancement systems can be considered the ultimate in electro acoustics, as these systems influence the perceived natural acoustics of a given space. Due its complex nature-and the interaction with subjective perception-these systems often are considered mystic or even a "black art." This tutorial will focus on how subjective and objective room acoustic qualities and parameters can be influenced with use of acoustic enhancement and how this relates to the requirements and design criteria for such a system.

In the presentation it is assumed that the attendees already have a basic knowledge of auditoria acoustics and acoustic enhancement systems, or at least have read the feature on acoustic enhancement by Francis Rumsey in JAES, Vol 26, No.6, 2014 June.
