The demand and financial revenue of Rock and Pop concerts is large and still increasing with the decreased revenue on recorded music.Based on the first ever scientific investigations on recommendable acoustics for amplified music conducted by the author, this book sets forward precise guidelines for music professionals to optimize the acoustics in existing or future halls for amplified music. The acoustic and architectural requirements for pop music venues are very different from those for classical music halls and opera houses.
