Home Cinema Installations and Great Transmission Through Doors

The reference level of one soundtrack is 105db and 115db for the LFE channel. Most people would find these levels quite high, but not challenging to listen to, in a correctly designed Home Cinemas St Albans cinema room.

A problem occurs though, when we face the challenge of keeping prospective inside the cinema room. In a residential installation, quite often we find bedrooms and other living areas to be right next to your home cinema nursery. Special room construction techniques allow us produce a sufficient noise barrier, in order to reduce any sound transmission to the adjacent rooms.

However, doors continually been the weakest point, in this attempt. The mass, damping and stiffness of the home cinema door will determine its resistance towards passage of any sound waves. A door’s ability to cut back noise is given by its Sound transmission Class. This means, the higher inside the Class the better the efficiency.

One more problem arises though; Sound waves can cross any opening with very little impairment. And to top it off, a tiny hole in a barrier would transmit almost as much sound as being a much larger golf hole. This acoustic property of sound could be an oversized problem in a small cinema installation, where high quality construction is required. Can be where acoustical gaskets come into have. A home cinema door, to be able to be effective, the seals around the head, jamb and sill must be complete and air-tight.

In other words, the standard of of the acoustical gasket in a home cinema installation, would see how close real sound performance of the door, arrives to the published requirements. A hi-end home cinema design should take everything into consideration, to ensure a hi-end acoustical conclude.
