Home Cinema Installations and Sounds Transmission Through Doors

The reference level of one soundtrack is 105db and 115db for the LFE channel. Most people would find these levels quite high, but not difficult to 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 residential installation, quite often we find bedrooms and other living areas to be right next towards the home cinema nursery. Special room construction techniques allow us create a sufficient noise barrier, in order to reduce any sound transmission to the adjacent rooms.

However, doors have been been the weakest point, in this kind 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 to cut back noise is offered by its Sound transmission Class. This means, the higher within the Class the better the efficiency.

One more problem arises though; Sound waves can travel through 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 golf hole. This acoustic property of sound could be a problem in your property cinema installation, where high quality construction is required. Which is where acoustical gaskets come into game. A home cinema door, to be able to be effective, the seals around the head, jamb and sill must be complete and air-tight.

In other words, exact same of the acoustical gasket in a real estate cinema installation, would see how close the particular sound performance of the door, will come to the published order. A hi-end Home Cinema Installation Hertfordshire cinema design should take everything into consideration, to ensure a hi-end acoustical result.
