The Importance of room correction in the quest for perfect sound
Blake Alty and John Bagby
Product Manager
Paradigm Electronics
Abstract:
We all want perfect sound. We want to know that we're getting the absolute best from our speakers. However, what many people may not realise is that achieving this 'perfect sound'? isn't just a matter of buying great sounding speakers. You can have the best-sounding, most expensive speakers on the market, but there's one factor that greatly impacts their performance - the room you place them in. The greatest detriment to good sound is almost always the room itself. Each unique room impacts loudspeakers in a unique way. This is especially true in the realm of bass response, which can end up boomy, or too thin. Even professionally treated sound rooms can benefit from room correction. In this presentation we will discuss the how and why of room correction and review which surfaces and room configurations tend to create certain outputs from loudspeakers. We will highlight the difference that room correction can make, using real world examples and explain the science behind this technology.
