This study has performed to analyse the measurement the main hall of Catholic churches and to find out general room acoustical characteristics. Furthermore, extracted data could be used in subjective evaluation for optimum values of each physical parameter. For the reason, we surveyed whole Catholic churches located in Gwangju metropolitan city and finally chose 11 churches to measure. Room volume of buildings chosen is ranged widely from 1,782 to 9,195 cubic meter so that measured values can be distributed including various characteristics of acoustical parameters.As a result, the differences of values using PA system as sound source were larger than those using omnidirectional speaker in the center part of alter and values of D50 and C80 in the balcony floor were especially appeared to have different values comparing with those of main floor due to diversified layout of speakers. The range of RT and EDT was from 1 to 3 sec. approximately depending on the room volume and sound absorbing materials installed on floor, wall and ceiling and it was revealed that RT at 250Hz of center frequency range was shortest and RT at 1kHz was largest as most of the materials applied to finishing were panel absorbers and reflectors such as wood panel, concrete and brick.
