Question Measuring A Rooms Lowest Usable Frequency

Hi.

I'm just curious when measuring a rooms lowest acceptable
frequency, do you measure it by:

Speed Of Sound divided by Frequency divided by Half Wave?

OR

Speed Of Sound divided by Frequency divided by Quarterwave?


OR

Some other method?


Thanks.

freq = speed of sound / longest dimension

There is no such thing as a room's 'lowest acceptable frequency', though there are of course resonant modes that will affect response in both a positive and negative fashion. If what you're referring to is the frequency below which cabin gain exists that would be at about a half-wavelength, which is speed of sound divided by longest dimension/2.
