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 hard 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 Home Theater Installation St Albans installation, quite often we find bedrooms and other living areas to be right next to your home cinema nursery. Special room construction techniques allow us to build a sufficient noise barrier, in order to reduce any sound transmission to the adjacent rooms.

However, doors have always been the weakest point, in type of attempt. The mass, damping and stiffness of the home cinema door will determine its resistance towards the passage of any sound waves. A door’s ability lessen noise is offered by 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 claim. And to top it off, a tiny hole in a barrier would transmit almost as much sound as being a much larger leak. This acoustic property of sound could be a significant problem in a small cinema installation, where high quality construction is required. That is where acoustical gaskets come into play. 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 actual of the acoustical gasket in a house cinema installation, would see how close the particular sound performance of the door, will come to the published specification. A hi-end home cinema design should take every piece of information into consideration, to ensure a hi-end acoustical stem.
