Home Cinema Installations and Sound Transmission Through Doors

The reference level found in a soundtrack is 105db and 115db for the LFE channel. Most people would find these levels quite high, but not challenging to listen to, in a correctly designed home cinema room.

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

However, doors continually been the weakest point, in type of attempt. The mass, damping and stiffness of the Home Cinema Installation Hertfordshire cinema door will determine its resistance towards the passage of any sound waves. A door’s ability to relieve noise is you can find at 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 harm. And to top it off, a tiny hole in a barrier would transmit nearly as much sound like a much larger emergency. This acoustic property of sound could be a significant problem in a home cinema installation, where high quality construction is required. That’s the where acoustical gaskets come into play. 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 quality of the acoustical gasket in a house cinema installation, would figure out how close specific sound performance of the door, arrives to the published specification. A hi-end home cinema design should take everything into consideration, to ensure a hi-end acoustical stem.
