ROOM MODEL: BASIC

What is a Room Model?

A room model is a 3-dimensional electro-acoustic computer model of the room the sound system is being installed in. The room model can take into account the surface materials within the room including:

  • Ceiling (Drywall, Wood, Acoustic Tiles etc...)
  • Walls (Drywall, Block, etc...)
  • Floor (Concrete, Concrete with Carpet, Concrete with Padded Carpet etc...)
  • Seating Areas

We use EASE (Electro-Acoustical Simulation for Engineers), a tool which allows us to accurately predict the acoustical outcome of a space or sound system prior to construction or installation. EASE is an industry-standard acoustics software package which brings together all the major professional-grade speaker manufacturers into one database. EASE provides us with the ability to virtually test different speaker and layout combinations in any room.

Why do I need a Room Model?

A true benefit of using EASE is that it allows us to compare loudspeaker Model X against loudspeaker Model Y, and predict each loudspeaker's performance at any location in an acoustical space. This ensures the right type of speaker(s) for the job, regardless of brand, and it allows us to verify the viability of different types of sound systems (e.g. distributed loud speaker system vs. a single-source or central cluster design).

Room Modeling Features / Advantages:

  • Allows comparison of different types of speaker cabinets ie... Vertical Line Array, Horizontal Array, LR Cluster, Single Center Cluster and Exploded Cluster(s) etc...
  • Speaker Analysis: Placement, Seating Area Coverage, Performance
  • Assures that the correct speaker system is installed in the proper location from the start.

What do you mean by "Basic?"

EASE can be applied to different degrees in analyzing an audio system - see More About EASE .... (330kb, pdf). Our "Basic" room model takes a look at speaker placement and speaker type with analysis over the seating area. And covers basic room configurations of single-level seating area(s) in predominantly square and rectangle shaped rooms with no more than 2 ceiling heights.

We can and do provide in-depth analysis of room models as well as create models for more complex rooms. Please contact us for further details.

What do you need from me?

Detailed and accurate room measurements and area locations are very important. The more acurrate and more detailed the information the more detailed and accurate the model will be which means the more accurate the analysis will be.

Here is what we need from you:

Existing Rooms:

  • Room dimensions (LxWxH)
  • Stage location and dimensions (LxWxH)
  • Listening area location(s), dimensions (LxW) and Ear Height (Sitting or Standing)
  • Ceiling Height and Variances
  • Room Surface Materials: Walls, Ceiling, Floor, Stage etc...
  • Digital Photos of the room with brief descriptions
  • If applicable - Current location, make and model of existing speaker system.
  • If available - a "To Scale," "As-Built" blueprint in AutoCAD LT 2009

    New Rooms - Not Yet Built:

  • Copy of architects blueprints in AutoCAD LT 2009, to scale, including elevation and topographical views of the room and containing:
    • Room dimensions (LxWxH)
    • Stage location and dimensions (LxWxH)
    • Listening area location(s), dimensions (LxW) and Ear Height (Sitting or Standing)
    • Ceiling Height and Variances
    • Room Surface Materials: Walls, Ceiling, Floor, Stage etc...

What does the Basic EASE Model include:

  • (1) Report of findings (pdf) that includes:
    • speaker type recommendation(s),
    • speaker placement recommendation(s)
    • quote with pricing
  • (1) EASE Model File
  • (1) Credit of 15% of the modeling fee. To be be applied towards the audio components if purchased from us within 30 days of completion of the model.
