Waves that exist between a pair of surfaces can create standing wave resonances whenever the distance between the surfaces is any even multiple of one-half of the wavelength. At resonant frequencies (tones), the sound is louder and decays much more slowly than at non-resonant frequencies, causing uneven tonal quality and interference with clarity. Resonant frequencies occur mainly in the bass range, due to the relationship between the wavelengths of low-frequency sounds and the typical sizes of listening rooms.
Absorption properties of the noise barriers made of scrap tires. Acoustics. Abatement and Distance from Source The disruption of sound pressures waves which reduces the noise is called attenuation - Sound Pressure Level Calculator Acceptable Noise - dBA - Levels.
Room Acoustics Calculator. The Room Acoustics Calculator enables you to design the acoustics of a room according to DIN 18041 and ÖNORM B 8115-3.
After the usage and the appropriate standard have been selected the calculator derives the relevant design quantities, tolerance ranges or limits, and the corresponding state of the room (furnished, unfurnished, occupied or unoccupied). Where a room is required to provide good audibility over greater distances, such as, for example, in a lecture hall, both standards require compliance with a reverberation time T within a given tolerance range. For rooms where the main issue is noise reduction, and good audibility is only desired over shorter distances as, for example, in open plan offices, different design quantities are defined in the two standards.
Acoustic Basics. By Ethan Winer Most budget electronic gear these days is very high quality, and can create first-rate music that sounds as good as anything on the radio.
Yet many recording enthusiasts, unhappy with the quality of their productions, wrongly blame their gear. Of course, experience matters, but so does having accurate acoustics. This "Tip Jar" article from Music Connection magazine explains the basics of acoustics in a way that everyone can easily understand. All of the information herein also applies to audiophile and home theater listening rooms. Welcome to ETF Acoustics.
