Comparison of a multi-purpose hall with three well-known concert halls

J.S. Bradley


The results of detailed measurements are used to compare acoustical conditions in a multi-purpose hall with those in three famous concert halls. The values of five modern acoustics measures are presented for each hall. Significant differences are expected and found between the multi-purpose hall and the dedicated concert halls. The paper is intended to demonstrate the value of using extensive modern measurements to more reliably evaluate acoustical conditions in auditoria
