Custom Acoustic Chamber Boosts Research Capabilities at

Boys Town National Research Hospital


CEDAR PARK, Texas March 22, 2019   ETS-Lindgren and Eclipse Acoustic Solutions announced their partnership on a custom acoustic chamber for the internationally recognized Boys Town National Research Hospital - a leader in clinical and research programs focusing on childhood deafness, visual impairment and related communication disorders.  Located in Omaha, Nebraska, Boys Town is a national organization that reaches communities from coast to coast.  Since 1917, Boys Town has given thousands of children the support and education they need to succeed.  In the Research Hospital laboratory, the new customized chamber will further the specific research needs of the physicians to support Boys Town patients.   Working closely with its valued partner Eclipse Acoustic Solutions, a turn-key equipment supplier and integrator, ETS-Lindgren designed a custom chamber for audio and acoustic research measurements.  Its baseline design provides a 100 Hz and above anechoic free field for precise sound localization and speech processing research.  The customized chamber ensures Boys Town's diverse audiology and research needs are met for acoustic performance, integration and efficient space utilization. 


ETS-Lindgren's customized Model A100-1.0, acoustic chamber with overall dimensions of 19' 10" x 18'-6" x 15'-1" (6.05m x 5.64m x 4.60m) will meet the acoustical concept of the physicians as well as the space constraints of hospital.  The chamber features a precision-grade free field environment used to measure sound source directivity, frequency response, and noise emissions from spherically radiating sound sources.  It also enables directional hearing and perception research.  Some examples of devices that require a similar acoustic environment include loudspeakers, microphones, and telephones.


"We are proud of our long relationship with Boys Town National Research Hospital and Eclipse Acoustic Solutions," said Scott Dunlap, Manager, Acoustic Sales for ETS-Lindgren.  "Both organizations share our commitment to high quality products and services; they are not only willing, but capable of pushing the boundary to create custom solutions so we can better serve the patients at Boys Town.  Our collective expertise and shared vision makes the partnership especially rewarding."   To learn more about ETS-Lindgren's long history with Boys Town and Eclipse Acoustic Systems, click here.
