The Bayreuth Festspielhaus is well known for its architecture because its design is heavily influenced by composer Richard Wagner. Due to the special acoustic design, the reverberation time (i.e., time scale for the sound pressure level to decay $60$~dB) is larger than usual opera houses. Using hand-claps and smart phone recordings, I measured the impulse response of the Bayreuth Festspielhaus in the auditorium, on the stage, as well as in the orchestra pit. The measured reverberation time…

Handclap for Acoustic Measurements: Optimal Application and Limitations

Handclap is a convenient and useful acoustic source. This study aimed to explore its optimal application and limitations for acoustic measurements as well for other possible utilizations. For this

Review of Acoustic Sources Alternatives to a Dodecahedron Speaker

An omnidirectional source is required in many acoustic measurements. Commonly a dodecahedron speaker is used but due to various factors (e.g., high cost, transportation difficulties) other acoustic
