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

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

However, doors have always been the weakest point, in such an attempt. The mass, damping and stiffness of the home cinema door will determine its resistance to your passage of any sound waves. A door’s ability to cut back noise is given by its Sound transmission Class. This means, the higher up the Class the better the efficiency.

One more problem arises though; Sound waves can cross any opening with very little loss. And to top it off, a tiny hole in a barrier would transmit nearly as much sound like a much larger hole. This acoustic property of sound could be a significant problem in a residential cinema installation, where high quality construction is required. In the area where acoustical gaskets come into have. A home cinema door, in an effort 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 figure out how close the particular sound performance of the door, will come to the published specification. A hi-end home cinema design should take the information into consideration, to ensure a hi-end acoustical result.
