Acoustics subway station

Acoustics in subway station Back to PA system examples This is a model of an underground station. A free field recording of an electric train (Danish 2nd generation S-train) is ‘played back’ through a line source at the rails. The announcement is played through a number of loudspeakers – the frequency response of the loudspeakers […]
