This letter responds to Klepper's comments [J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 110, 1260 (2001)] on the subject paper, which is concerned with ameliorating seat dip attenuation in auditoria by introducing a pit under the seats. Klepper asks what the effect of the pit will be on seat absorption and reverberation times. A little evidence is presented to support the idea that low-frequency absorption in an auditorium will increase with a pit. It is further speculated that reverberation times could be predicted by using a coupled space model. Klepper's suggestion of an experiment to answer his questions is supported.
