Sound and Acoustics
How will we handle room acoustics?
We will work with the architect and potentially with an acoustical engineer.
Is the space intimate enough that we won’t need microphones?
Unfortunately, no. For one thing, a T-coil or hearing loop, which transmits sound directly into hearing aids, relies on amplification. The HVAC improvements will reduce background noise, which may reduce the degree of amplification needed. Certain seating layouts may have the same effect. The committee will work with Rabbi Woodward to design a sound system that complies with Shabbat restrictions.
