Definitions for "Reverberation Time"
The length of time that it takes for the reverberation to be down to one millionth its original strength. It is measured in seconds.
The time taken for the overall sound level of reflections to decay to 60dB below the initial level. Go to Index.
The time it takes for Reflected Sound to Dissipate to an inaudible level. Some Reverberation in the listening room is desirable, but too much will create echoes, making the music sound confused and untidy. The bathroom is a good example of a highly reverberant room, because of its many hard and reflective surfaces and little if any Sound Absorbing surfaces. A good method of Gauging the Reverberation Time of a particular room is the simple hand clap, to see how much Echo there is after the Initial Clap.
