Sound Testing

What is sound testing?

Sound testing is the process of measuring the sound pressure level (SPL) in order to assess the noise emitted by a particular source. It is typically used to evaluate the performance of equipment, determine the best location for installations, or assess the effectiveness of noise mitigation measures.
