A Survey of Reverberation times in 50 European venues presenting pop & rock concerts

Abstract

In the fall of 2010 more than 50 halls around Europe were measured in order to determine their
reverberation times as a function of frequency as well as other objective acoustic parameters.
Many of the measured halls had a capacity of more than 2000 audiences and this paper is
primarily an attempt as to look into what is actually achievable and what may through future
subjective studies turn out to be recommendable in terms of i.e. T30 in this type of larger venues at
pop and rock concerts. Also possibly acceptable spectral tolerances around recommendable T30 are
investigated. Often pop and rock concerts take place in multipurpose venues that also host
classical music or even sports games. This paper furthermore introduces an affordable variable
and mobile absorption product that also absorbs the important low frequency sound energy.
