About Acoustics

The term “room acoustics“ is a comprehensive notion that is often referred to by using qualitative expressions, such as: the acoustics are “dry”, “warm”, “spacial” or “clear”.

To investigate and qualify the acoustics of a room, we use a number of parameters:


The most relevant room acoustic parameters are:

  • Reverberation Time and Early Decay Time
  • Sound transmission (direct and indirect radiation)
  • Echoes und flutter echoes
  • Speech intelligibility (RASTI)
  • Bas-Ratio (BR)
  • Clarity

As every building has a different room structure and different acoustic requirements, it is necessary to design individual acoustical measures. Incatro is able to develop a complete acoustic design for any room.
