IAC Acoustics produces listening rooms for testing the sound quality of various noises associated with a certain vehicle. These important facilities play a large part in the R&D process, utilising first hand market research data. The research data gathered, aids in ‘tuning’ for example a vehicle to sound a certain way and is typically very different across models, even from the same manufacturer.
Manufactured from IAC’s Moduline®, a modular acoustic construction panel system, the facilities have to be isolated from any other interfering noise to gain the best results. IAC Varitone™ or AccuTone™ panels are then used inside the room to tune the absorption and hence reverberation times so that room reflections do not ‘colour’ the sound under assessment.
