Ideal reverb decay?

What's the ideal reverb decay time (let's assume RT60) if you're setting up a dead voiceover space?

RTx is irrevelant in small acoustics spaces.

interesting why is that? surely there's still an optimum decay time for different frequencies even in a small room.

RT is stochastic, scalar,there is no direction.
That only happens in larger spaces with a minimum of asorption.
In a voiceover space you have modes and direct reflections.
The decay of modes in smaller spaces can be monitored by measurement techniques like cumulative Spectral Decay or Burst Decay or EDT, not by RT measurements.

You can find this values in the ebu tech 3276 with Google.

If I understand you correctly, you would say even a voice booth should not have modes sticking out?

Depends on the frequency of these modes.
In a very small room they could fall in the voice bandwidth.

What size is this voiceover space? Purpose?

Let's say 4' wide, 6' long, and 7' high.
