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

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

However, doors have always been the weakest point, in an attempt. The mass, damping and stiffness of the home cinema door determines its resistance towards passage of any sound waves. A door’s ability to lessen noise is offered by 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 harm. And to top it off, a tiny hole in a barrier would transmit nearly as much sound for a much larger emergency. This acoustic property of sound could be a big problem in your property cinema audio visual installation Hertfordshire, where high quality construction is required. That is where acoustical gaskets come into have. 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 house cinema installation, would determine how close the actual sound performance of the door, will come to the published order. A hi-end home cinema design should take everything into consideration, to ensure a hi-end acoustical end result.
