Reverb Analysis

Every church should have a baseline RT-60 measurement on file. This measurement is used by all sound professionals, A/V installers, etc. A new RT-60 mesurement should be taken after every remodel or alteration to the Sanctuary. Even a new paint job can alter this important measurement. We'll provide complete RT-60 charts and data summary.

ASC can also perform a separate test to check your sound system's RT-60 using our Test CD. Call us for more info.

For the standard RT-60 analysis, we ask that you provide the item listed below:

  • A "Balloon Test" of the church

This helps to measure the reverberation of the room--how long it takes sound to die out. It is is known as an RT-60 Test. Although this can be theoretically calculated, it is better to have an actual test done when possible.

The cost is $300 (2010) and can be applied to your final acoustics package.
