The Book of Acoustics

Chapter 3.0 Types of acoustic treatment

3.2 Treatment options

Besides taking into account the innate acoustic properties of an interior’s materials and surfaces, there are several acoustic treatments that can be introduced to help construct the desired acoustic environment. These treatments can be used to mitigate any problematic sound behaviours and optimise the overall acoustic experience. There are four main treatment types, corresponding with the ABCDs of sound control which were summarised earlier.
