How to use RoomModes Calculator the right way

Recommended Posts

I am just using this calculator and as any other calculator I found it works only with rectangular boxes. All dimensions are necessary to predict room acoustics and also oblique reflections should be calculated (as this one does). Even small deviations from that simple box like windows and doors which are not flush with that surface make these simulations not 100% predictive. Also nonparallel surfaces like sloping ceilings make these calculations less predictive of reality.

A lot of modern architectural designs like open floor plans but I have only seen on the web the recommendation to avoid them because they do not fit any acoustic program. I wonder if the statement of rectangular boxes are superior is true? The best concert hall I know, Walt Disney in LA, is anything than rectangular
