Home Cinema Installations and Firm 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 hard listen to, in a correctly designed home cinema room.

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

However, doors continually been the weakest point, in an attempt. The mass, damping and stiffness of the Home Cinemas Hertfordshire cinema door determines its resistance to the passage of any sound waves. A door’s ability to reduce noise is offered by its Sound transmission Class. This means, the higher in the Class the better the efficiency.

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

In other words, exact same of the acoustical gasket in a place cinema installation, would determine how close real sound performance of the door, arrives to the published specification. A hi-end home cinema design should take the information into consideration, to ensure a hi-end acoustical end result.
