Outdoor Concert Noise Level Monitoring

iAcoustics are Irelands leading experts on concert noise monitoring. iAcoustics are kept busy every summer with a host of outdoor concerts and events. 

Event promoters must agree to meet the pre-conditioned noise limits at nearby noise-sensitive locations as set out by the local council. In most cases, noise from concerts must not exceed 75dB(A) when measured as a 15-minute average. Urban areas are particularly challenging as there are often residential dwelling nearby.

For this reason, we calibrate the PA systems in the days leading up to the event. That way, all parties can be confident that we can meet the limits during the show. Concerts include: The Rollings Stones, Ed Sheeran, Billy Joel, Justin Bieber, Paul Simon, Bruce Springsteen and many more.
