Acoustic design is based on the client’s aspirations, with the aim to make space have its own acoustic identity and create a truly bespoke system to that room, restoring the natural sound balance allowing you to hear what was intended by the artist or director.
The physics of the propagation of sound is immensely complicated, and when the assortment of materials that make up the walls, floors, and ceiling (including windows, doors and furniture) are added to the equation, it's very difficult to predict what will happen to sound waves once they've left their source.
Acoustically treating a room comes in three major steps.
Corner Base Trapping
Low-frequency sound absorption or Corner Base Trapping. Without bass control, your musical foundation (everything you hear below 300 Hz) is heavily distorted by acoustical chaos: room modes, standing waves, random wave interference, comb filtering and speaker-boundary interference response (SBIR)
Early Reflection Treatment
According to standard definitions, early reflections are sounds that arrive at the listener after being reflected maybe once or twice from parts of listening space, such as walls, ceilings, and floor. They arrive later than the direct sound, often in a range from 5 to 100 milliseconds, but can arrive before the onset of full reverberation. The early reflections give your brain the information about the size of a room, and for the sense of distance of sounds in a room. They have an important role in determining the general character and sound of the room.
Appropriate control of reverberation, control of noise from the exterior and appropriate ambient noise levels within.
