ADA Acoustics & Media Consultants GmbH

After the defeat of the German division, and upon meeting the objective requirements, the engineering firm ADA Acoustic Design Ahnert was initially founded with two colleagues. From day one, the software program EASE, which was at that time still DOS-based, was available. As a result, the feasibility of room- and electro-acoustic designs could be efficiently verified. Large projects during the early 90s, such as the planning of a new sound reinforcement system for the German Opera (Deutsche Oper) in Berlin, supported the start-up phase.

A similar experience was gathered during the reconstruction of the Plenary Assembly of the Parliament in Ankara, where in 1996, for the first time, a fingerprint system for the identification of the Members of Parliament was introduced, which is still in operation in its original form till today. The number of awarded contracts in the country and abroad was then increasing as well as the number of employees. In 2010, the activities profile of the sole-property company ADA Acoustic Design Ahnert was transferred to ADA Acoustics & Media Consultants GmbH. Major tasks are still ahead of our team, such as the extensive Al Maktoum International Airport, which is currently under construction and is intended in its first construction phase to serve around 120 million passengers per year.

scope of services:
Expert services, measurements

The largest church in Berlin, consecrated in 1905, has always been acoustically difficult in its shape as a domed building. Already in 1932 the acoustician Erwin Meyer made attempts to reduce reverberation with suspended wool threads and other materials.

Since its reopening in 1993, the church has been repeatedly examined from an acoustic point of view.  For example, since the opening ADA has worked several times in this 1,400-person church. The loudspeaker system with active, controllable line arrays, which was installed in 2002 according to the planning concept of ADA, was examined and documented in terms of its function and achieved speech transmission quality in 2007/08.
