AbstractDetails of a procedure for efficiently and accurately calculating various auditorium acoustics measures from pistol shots are described. Early/late sound ratios, decay times, center time, and modulation transfer functions are calculated in octave bands. Measurements for a wide range of acoustical conditions are compared with simple predictions, and various quantities are found to be strongly intercorrelated.
