Acoustic Measurement – Leo L. Beranek – 1st Edition

Description

. Leo L. Beranek. Source of practical acoustical concepts and theory, with information on microphones, loud-speakers and speaker enclosures, and room acoustics.

This is the to get to learn about acoustics from one of its original founders of the and in the field. I prefer it to the later book jointly authored with Mellow but that is OK if you can’t get this earlier edition. Beranek is a good teacher and the ideas flow naturally, but succinctly. Equations are used only to inform, not intimidate.
