Chamber mass is estimated at 600 tons, and the same "cube" is set on vibration isolation supported on the 100 springs, which limit the transmission of vibrations from a nearby road.

Background sound pressure level, measured in the chamber during the day is about 1.5 dBA (night time falls even below 0 dB).

Inside the chamber is mounted keypad prototype to measure the sound power level whose capabilities have been extended to the measurement of directivity and dispersion.
