Acoustics design is an essential part of the design of theaters and other large public assembly spaces, where the spoken word must be heard and understood. To achieve excellent acoustic quality in large rooms, various parameters must be controlled during the design, and specific value targets must be met.

Decisive for the acoustic quality of a large room is, most of all, its geometry, its dimensions, and its volume. Failing to optimize those three parameters can lead to disappointing results, affecting essential acoustics criteria that are not easy, if at all, to remedy at a later design stage or by other means.

The essential criteria defining the acoustic qualities of any large room include the reverberation time, the strength index, speech intelligibility, and the noise level.

Reverberation time and noise level are crucial for intelligibility, the last usually due to electro-mechanical installations and air conditioning systems.

MMT works on theater acoustics design closely with the project’s lead architect. This is crucial for achieving the desired result, both architectural and acoustics design. Its contribution to many design projects, from small drama theaters to large music halls, in close cooperation with prominent designers, provided MMT with valuable experience in theater acoustics.
