AbstractReverberation chamber sound absorption tests were carried out to determine the sound absorption of various components of typical theatre chairs with both cloth and impermeable plastic coverings. The results of these tests were then used to devise an optimized chair that would minimize occupied sound absorption, while also maximizing unoccupied absorption.
