The design of sound systems for small spaces requires the estimation of reflected field sound levels. The classical Hopkins-Stryker equation for LD and LR assumes a mixing reverberant field. Such a field seldom exists in small spaces with significant, non-uniformly distributed absorption. Ray tracing can produce a much better estimate, but requires the creation of a room model. Ted Schultz produced an equation that is a sort of hybrid of the two, combining simple implementation without the assumption of a statistical reverberant field. Ernst Genser has written a paper on the various approaches to the small space, with examples of each. He has generously offered to share it with our readers.
