...Acoustics (Insert Room Acoustics Introduction Room Acoustics refers to how sound behaves in an enclosed space; more specifically, in a room. People have the general perception that the speakers in our stereo or home theatre systems are the final sound link in the whole sound chain. In other words, people believe that the speakers in the music system make the biggest difference to the sound that reaches our ears. But from a sound engineering point of view, the placement of speakers and the sound that proceeds from them in a stereo and home theatre setup is but partly responsible for what we hear. What many people do not know is that the room in which the sound has been set up determines... ? Room...

In the 2003 study, Moore describes a sinusoid as a sine wave, the simplest sort of audible sound. A simple reaction of the human auditory system occurs as a direct result of sinusoids. Sinusoids, which possess a “pure” sound, consist of three aspects. First, sinusoids are specified as possessing frequency, or the number of occasions per measured second in which a waveform completes one cycle by repeating itself, computed through hertz. One inclusive cycle of the waveform, or the time in which it takes to complete, is referred to as a period. Another... Vowel...
