Home Cinema Installations and Sounds Transmission Through Doors

The reference level of ones 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 cinema room.

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

However, doors constantly been the weakest point, in an attempt. The mass, damping and stiffness of the Home Theater Installation Hertfordshire cinema door determines its resistance to the passage of any sound waves. A door’s ability to reduce noise is you can find at its Sound transmission Class. This means, the higher within the Class the better the efficiency.

One more problem arises though; Sound waves can cross any opening with very little claim. And to top it off, a tiny hole in a barrier would transmit almost as much sound as a much larger leak. This acoustic property of sound could be a big problem in a small cinema installation, where high quality construction is required. That’s the where acoustical gaskets come into engage. A home cinema door, so as 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 house cinema installation, would determine how close the actual sound performance of the door, will come to the published requirements. A hi-end home cinema design should take every piece of information into consideration, to ensure a hi-end acoustical stem.
