Hello,
To what extent is it possible to determine correct treatments by just evaluating room dimensions and accommodating for “conditions”(ie, the presence of equipment, furniture, windows, etc). That is, in the final analysis, do you have to take SPL readings?

Thanks, Phil

You must consider room size/volume/usage along with the surface area coverage of all sound absorption surface areas within the room.

Hello, again,
I don’t think my question was clear. I wanted to know if in every case you will need SPL readings. Or, how well can you hope to treat a room using only the criteria you mention above–ie, without the SPL readings.

Room treatment type, amount, and position is based upon the pressure requirements of the chosen usage along with the dimensions of the room, the construction methodology and materials used within the room boundary surfaces.
