  1. Ima thinkin that “probably” the better amphitheatres have the “horn” charasteristics incorporated into the structure. Maybe not so much the 90* floor to walls, but the back to front and the sides to ceiling. Kinda like the “conch” shell.

  2. Anthony Grimani is an expert in acoustics for hifi, his YouTubes very valuable.

    One of his Big Things is balancing bass absorption with diffusion.
    His company makes such devices, not cheap but likely less than Paul’s.

  3. Hello Prof. Paul,

    Thank you for taking my question.
    The descriptive phrase you were looking for is “tri-partite window bay”. That’s okay; we know you’re not an architect. Your expertise is dreaming big technical ideas and attracting smart administrative and technical people around you to make it so.

  4. Big fan of how Dick Burwen set up his listening room with a whole bunch of non-parallel walls. Also the ceiling/floor follows this principle as well. I bet that room sounds pretty amazing!
