What is the process of carrying out a sound test?

An airborne sound test is carried out by creating a loud noise using a large speaker on one side of the wall and recording how much of that noise comes through the wall using a sound level meter. The same method applies to testing through floors. In order to carry out a sound test, the tester will need access to the two dwellings being tested and the dwellings need to be unoccupied
