Optimum Reverberation Time as a Function of Frequency

  • John M. Eargle


The data presented in section 146 may be used to target a specific reverberation time depending on room size and use; that value is nominally the reverberation time at 500 Hz. For music, it is desirable for the reverberation time to be longer at lower frequencies by a factor of about 1.5.
