Abstract

Numerous concert halls and auditoria in Hong Kong has been built and used for decades. Most of the halls in this congested city are designed for multi-purpose use and built with balconies for maximizing the space use. While objective and subjective evaluations on acoustical properties of performance halls have been done around the world, it is time for Hong Kong to have her own systematic research. In the present study, measurements have been done in two fan-shaped multipurpose performance halls. The conditions with and without the acoustic enclosure were also studied. Dual channel dummy head was used as the receiver, while a omni-directional sound source with room acoustics DIRAC were used for MLS production and computing. Measurement points were located throughout the halls.
