Auditorium / Theater Acoustics

Auditoriums and theaters require premium sound quality. Delivering clear, and crisp sound to every member of the audience regardless of their location in the theater. Auditoriums are typically built with non-parallel perimeter walls, and angled ceilings and floors so that the sound wave reflections scatter evenly throughout the space. Poor room acoustics are caused by a lack of absorption, which leaves echoes in the space which in turn blur the original sounds. Clarit is compromised and the audience is left dissatisfied with their experience.

Overtone knows how to avoid that. 

We can help you pick the correct auditorium acoustic panels that you can apply to the perimeter walls and ceiling surfaces. In order to improve the sound quality inside your Auditorium, your goal should be to produce equal premium sound quality for everybody no matter where they happen to be seated within the space.

Auditoriums are typically shaped like a fan by design. The non-parallel sets of surfaces combine to break standing sound waves and create an equal dispersion of sound waves to every member of the audience.  Blurred sound signals will lead to an uncomfortable experience for the audience. By placing auditorium acoustic panels on the walls or ceiling surfaces in the theater, premium quality sound can be achieved.

As the echoes are caught and captured, greater clarity to original sound is restored. Your audience will thank you, and so will the performers, and musicians on your stage.


Here are some tips to keep in mind

How do I improve sound quality in an existing Auditorium?

Sound wave reverberations will echo through an auditorium and blur original sound signals coming from the stage. If not treated with acoustic panels, these echoes will destroy the sound quality coming from your stage. You cannot allow the clarity of your sound to be compromised in an auditorium. Installing sound panels on all of the hard surfaces within your theater is the first step to creating premium quality sound. You will also need to add acoustic paneling to the ceiling of the auditorium to drop the level of background noise.

How do ensure clarity of speech in a Theater?

Because of the large size of many theaters, there are equally large hard, reflective surfaces for sounds to bounce off of. Speech and become difficult to make out to excess, unwanted soundwaves that are bouncing off of the perimeter of the theater. To correct this issue, it is smart to install acoustic soundproofing throughout the space. We have many different types to choose from, and we here at Overtone are available to answer any questions that you might have.
