Northeastern Blackman Auditorium

Boston, Massachusetts

Blackman Auditorium is a key assembly space for Northeastern University and hosts many types of events, including classes, lectures, movies, theater, dance teams, musical groups, choral groups, and orchestral ensembles. Over time, NU received numerous complaints of inconsistent sound quality throughout both the main orchestra seating and the balcony. As they believed the issues involved the need to evaluate acoustics and audio holistically, SH Acoustics was brought in to conduct an extensive listening evaluation, visual inspection and technical measurements to ascertain the required improvements. 

SHA presented a three-part solution involving acoustic improvements, audio system upgrades, and a process of audio calibration that ensured a dramatically improved and consistent listening experience for all audience members.
