Normal Conversation is 60-65 Db
= Smaller Speaker
= Pile Speaker
Instead of creating one or two "piles" of speakers that have to make enough sound for everyone, make lots of smaller lumps. The problem is that the amount of acoustical energy required to fill a large venue is significant. If it all emanates from a single location, it will be unbearable for a significant radius (which is governed by a combination of the inverse square log rule and the effect of the echoes that hang in the air after the original sound has passed).
It becomes obvious that the more speakers you have the lower the sound level is that has to come out of them. The logical extension would be to give everyone headphones. The compromise should be to scatter speakers throughout the audience and then use digital delays to create a natural propagation of the sound through the space as though it all came from the stage.
If this were done, then the effect of the echoes on the sound could be reduced to zero increasing the intelligibility of the program.
Is this location a danger because of it’s proximity to the Airport?
