Home Cinema Installations and Sounds 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 tough 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 household installation, quite often we find bedrooms and other living areas to be right next to your home cinema residence. Special room construction techniques allow us develop a sufficient noise barrier, in order to reduce any sound transmission towards adjacent rooms.

However, doors have been been the weakest point, in this attempt. The mass, damping and stiffness of the home cinema door will determine its resistance towards passage of any sound waves. A door’s ability to lessen noise is you can find at its Sound transmission Class. This means, the higher inside the Class the better the efficiency.

One more problem arises though; Sound waves can cross 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 hole. This acoustic property of sound could be a problem in a small cinema installation, where high quality construction is required. In the area 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 quality of the acoustical gasket in an at Home Cinema Installation St Albans cinema installation, would figure out how close the actual sound performance of the door, will arrive to the published standard. A hi-end home cinema design should take everything into consideration, to ensure a hi-end acoustical stop result.
