A larger room has a _______ reverberation time than a smaller room.
Large rooms, rooms with fewer surfaces, and rooms with harder, smoother, less-fuzzy surfaces are more reverberant (sound lingers longer after it is suddenly stopped). The more reverberant the room, the longer the reverberation time, measured in seconds. Rooms with unamplified speech, amplified speech, and amplified music generally want to be less reverberant: they want to be smaller, with fuzzier surfaces. In contrast, rooms for unamplified music, like concert halls, generally want to be more reverberant: larger, with harder and smoother surfaces.
