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

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

However, doors have been been the weakest point, in type of attempt. The mass, damping and stiffness of the Home Theater Installation Hertfordshire cinema door will determine its resistance for the passage of any sound waves. A door’s ability to lessen noise is available from its Sound transmission Class. This means, the higher inside the Class the better the efficiency.

One more problem arises though; Sound waves can travel through any opening with very little impairment. And to top it off, a tiny hole in a barrier would transmit nearly as much sound as a much larger golf hole. This acoustic property of sound could be an oversized problem in your property cinema installation, where high quality construction is required. That’s the where acoustical gaskets come into engage. 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, the quality of the acoustical gasket in an at home cinema installation, would see how close the actual sound performance of the door, will come to the published order. A hi-end home cinema design should take the information into consideration, to ensure a hi-end acoustical conclude.
