Acoustic Problems Presented by Gymnasiums
Gymnasiums are normally very large rooms that are totally built from hard and
acoustically reflective surfaces. In addition to these factors it is acceptable for people in gyms to scream when something exciting is happening, have some form of sporting equipment such as a basket ball being bounced or have the PA sound system in the background giving a minute by minute update.
What we have here is a potential acoustic nightmare, but due to the high sound absorption characteristic of acoustic insulation foam, the acoustic of the room can be easily controlled.
