Do you want to treat the acoustics of your room but you do not know the number of acoustic panels to add?
With our acoustic calculator, you should simply add the dimensions of your room (Length, Width and Height), choose the desired reverberation time* and the thickness of the acoustic panels (1″ or 2″).
Our calculator will do the rest by calculating the surface to cover in square feet and the quantity of DECOSOFT acoustic panels to add to the walls and/or ceiling.
Reverberation in a room is the result of sound waves reflecting on surfaces. Reverberation time is defined as the necessary time in seconds it takes down the sound energy to 60 decibels after the stoppage of the sound source. The reverberation time in a room affects directly the speech intelligibility and musical clarity.
(*) Desired reverberation time :
- 0.5 seconds : Recording, mixing and broadcasting studios.
- 1 second : Speech comprehension and sound clarity. Examples (Classroom, conference room, teleconference, call center, Restaurant, Home studio, home theater, open office etc.)
- 1.5 seconds : Multipurpose room, Places of worship, small theater and auditorium
- 2 seconds : large showroom, large theaters and auditoriums, gymnasium, aquatic centers etc.
