Large spaces have specific needs for sound control, especially when audio quality is throughout the space, such as in an auditorium or lecture hall. In these places, speech clarity is crucial. In large spaces, the sound (e.g. the speaker’s voice) must travel a greater distance to reach the people sitting at the back of the room, and if the reverberation is not handled properly there will be reflections coming back in the opposite direction, as well as from the side walls. Often technology is blamed when issues arise when in fact the room’s acoustics are at fault. Large rooms with inadequate design for sound distribution can only be remedied with appropriately designed and installed acoustic panels to condition the room by absorbing and reducing echo and noise.
