I tried to work out what I should do to make my current studio
acoustically neutral. First I read some acoustics textbooks, then I used
some modelling software, then I gave up and just moved stuff around until
it sounded OK ;)
Seriously, especially in a bar you just have to try it and see. The number
of people in it will make a huge difference. IANAAE*, but I think the
meat will counter out the problems from the hard floor. Ever done a
soundcheck in an empty nightclub, they sound terrible.
