Home Cinema Installations and Sound Transmission Through Doors

The reference level about a soundtrack is 105db and 115db for the LFE channel. Most people would find these levels quite high, but not tough 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 for the home cinema nursery. Special room construction techniques allow us put together a sufficient noise barrier, in order to reduce any sound transmission into the adjacent rooms.

However, doors constantly been the weakest point, in this attempt. The mass, damping and stiffness of the Home Theater Installation St Albans cinema door determines its resistance to the passage of any sound waves. A door’s ability to lessen noise is written by its Sound transmission Class. This means, the higher in the Class the better the efficiency.

One more problem arises though; Sound waves can cross any opening with very little harm. And to top it off, a tiny hole in a barrier would transmit almost as much sound for a much larger emergency. This acoustic property of sound could be a big problem in a building cinema installation, where high quality construction is required. Which is where acoustical gaskets come into game. 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 place cinema installation, would determine how close specific sound performance of the door, can come to the published requirements. A hi-end home cinema design should take everything into consideration, to ensure a hi-end acoustical end result.
