The article focuses on the important factors for good acoustics sounds in worshipping. It states that based on the definition of alcon, the measurement of speech clarity, good value of sound consist of an architectural acoustic design and sound systems. It notes the importance of reverberation in the clarity of speech and music. It cites several factors that should be considered for good sound reverberation which include room size and proportion of sound absorbed by interior materials.
