Home Cinema Installations and Sounds Transmission Through Doors

The reference level of a 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 prospective inside the cinema room. In residential installation, quite often we find bedrooms and other living areas to be right next to the home cinema residence. Special room construction techniques allow us put together a sufficient noise barrier, in order to reduce any sound transmission towards adjacent rooms.

However, doors continually been the weakest point, in such 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 relieve noise is available from its Sound transmission Class. This means, the higher up the Class the better the efficiency.

One more problem arises though; Sound waves can traverse any opening with very little pain. And to top it off, a tiny hole in a barrier would transmit almost as much sound being a much larger golf hole. This acoustic property of sound could be a big problem in a small cinema installation, where high quality construction is required. Which is 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, exact same of the acoustical gasket in a real estate cinema installation, would figure out how close real sound performance of the door, stomach to the published standard. A hi-end home cinema design should take every piece of information into consideration, to ensure a hi-end acoustical stop result.
