Sound improvement in the Memorial Hall

24 Acoustic tiles were installed in the Wilbrahams’ Memorial Hall to reduce the echo and improve the sound.  Acoustic attenuation tiles were put in place hanging from the ceiling. By hanging them on hooks a few inches from the ceiling means both sides of the tiles absorb sound. The tiles are supposed to reduce the reverberation from 4.5 seconds to .45 seconds, thus improving the Intelligibility of speech.The first users of the hall, Weenie Warblers and the Yoga group, said there was a great improvement.
