What is Reverberation

/What is Reverberation

Reverberation in acoustics is when a sound is reflected causing more noise until it is absorbed. If reverb takes to long from when the initial sound reaches the person it is normally unwanted noise. Reverberation is canceled out over time by naturally placed elements such as furniture and drapes. In some places such as concert halls a certain amount of reverberation is wanted but there is a need to control it.

Reverb can improve or ruin the acoustics of a room. In typical room acoustics to much reverb can make someone’s speech unintelligible. It can be controlled by installing sound barriers, ceiling baffles and banners or decorative acoustic wall panels to name a few items. These items can absorb the sounds reducing the reverb.
