A roman theatre in the ancient city of Aspendos, with a capacity of 15,000 people. Aspendos is situated in Turkey close to Antalya.


Measurements were simulated with 1 source in 7 receiver positions – here we are having a look from each receiver position, from each source and a look around the “room”.
