Challenge

A standard gym with a reverb time over 6.5 seconds was too noisy for youth worship, meetings and banquets.

Solution

It appears simple, just nail a few acoustic panels on the wall. We opted to use a computer model to show the church how many panels they needed.

Option 1 reduced the reverb to 3.5 seconds. Option 2 reduced the reverb to 2.9 seconds, 226% reduction!

The church decided on Option 2 because they could see the drop in reverb time and believed the change would support more ministry activities.
