Abstract

Massey Hall (MH) and Boston Symphony Hall (BSH) are of about the same age with generally similar acoustical properties, but with a number of distinct differences. The authors summarise comparisons of extensive objective acoustical measurements in each hall. These comparisons are intended to demonstrate how various newer auditorium acoustics measures can be used to better understand the acoustical properties of large halls and to more reliably diagnose acoustical problems in halls
