AXL technical provides architectural acoustics consulting for structures and sub-structures. New and existing buildings and venues require some form of acoustic treatment for either dampening or excitation the space. Dampening is the action of reducing frequencies that are irritating or causing excessive disruption of the equilibrium of the space. Excitation is the act of livening a space that is too quiet. A hybrid of these is where a live area is required as well as a dampened area.
For example, an auditorium, which needs a live area on stage to broadcast the sound to the audience, and a dampened area in the seating area so the sounds of the listeners do not disturb the actors on stage.
