    If acoustic parameters sometimes seem difficult to grasp, this practical example should help clarify at least one of them, the Limiting Distance, DL. This is a parameter associated with reverberant spaces, such as gyms and churches with little absorption. Remember that in such spaces there will exist a reverberant sound field LR, that is uniform throughout the space, as well as specific reflections that are not. If a loudspeaker or other acoustic source is used to excite the space, there… View this post

    In the early 1990s we were the kings of grunge, based in Seattle. We were the capital of music at the time, and we had a ton of wedges. Literally, a ton or more, as our company had over 100 of them. A few hours down the road in Oregon, we heard tales of a well established rock band using custom-fitted “headphones” that went inside the ear, like a hearing aid. At the time I remember saying, “that’s the dumbest… View this post

    sound level meters
    Tom Young 01/27/12 02:56 PM,
    A sound level meter (SLM) is a device used to make frequency-weighted sound pressure level measurements displayed in dB-SPL. 0.0 dB-SPL is the threshold of hearing, and is equal to 20uPa (microPascals). This correlates to what one would aurally perceive when in a deep cave or in a large anechoic chamber. Packaged as a single-function handheld test device, SLMs are intended to be held at arm’s length during measurements (to reduce the effects of the body on the measurements) or… View this post
