Acoustical Modeling of a space cannot be done until that space has been built. This makes predicting how a space will sound very challenging. JBL EASE aims to allow architects and acousticians to run simulations of their rooms before they are built - getting a general idea of how it will sound so it won't go completely awry. This is very useful and could potentially save lots of money by having a well designed room instead of having to fix it with acoustical treatments later.
How did we run our simulations? Simple! Follow this easy process!
- Make a model in Google Sketchup
- Import model to JBL EASE
- Read the manual
What Did We Learn From All This?
After running all of our simulations and comparing them to how the stairwell actually sounds, we have confirmed that JBL EASE does a very good job modeling rooms. Here's what we learned, in picture-book form.
