Reverberant and noisy rooms

Solutions by TÜCHLER for reverberant and noisy rooms 

An unpleasant phenomenon is common in event locations, restaurants and further rooms. The noise level increases with the head count. When few people are present, relaxed conversation is possible. The fuller the room gets, the louder people have to speak or almost shout, to make themselves understood.

The problem of rising noise levels 

A known phenomenon occurs in rooms such as restaurants or event locations. The noise level rises with the head count. Initially, the few people present can hold relaxed conversations. However, as soon as the room is full, people have to speak louder to be heard at all. Soon, relaxed conversation is almost impossible. This problem, often not directly connected to the room acoustics, occurs when the reverberation time is too long.

The physical cause: reverberation time and its effect

Reverberation time is the duration of time a sound can be heard, after the sound source has stopped. In rooms with a long reverberation time, different conversations overlap and are reflected by hard surfaces, leading to a continuously increasing noise level. In consequence, people have to speak louder to make themselves understood, thus further increasing the noise level. This cycle leads to an unpleasant and noisy environment and makes relaxed communication impossible.  

Reducing reverberation time for “calmer” rooms

Reducing the reverberation time results in a “calmer” or “drier” room and is an effective solution for this problem. The persistent noise level is lowered by reducing the reverberation time, leading to a more pleasant and intelligible acoustic environment, even when the room is full.
