This project involves finding and treating acoustical problems in a small studio space (WICN Radio) to improve its acoustic environment. The approach adopted was to consult professionals and literature in acoustics, set up a computer model of the acoustic problems, and run acoustical tests. The project concludes the presence of modal problems and an irregularly distributed reverberation time, which need to be addressed. Recommendations and analysis suggests the implementation of RPG Inc.'s Modex solutions complemented by a constructed performance stage.
