Home Cinema Installations and Sound 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 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 residential 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 put together a sufficient noise barrier, in order to reduce any sound transmission to the adjacent rooms.

However, doors continually been the weakest point, in such an attempt. The mass, damping and stiffness of the Home Cinemas St Albans cinema door will determine its resistance towards passage of any sound waves. A door’s ability to relieve noise is given by its Sound transmission Class. This means, the higher within 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 being a much larger leak. This acoustic property of sound could be a big problem in a residential cinema installation, where high quality construction is required. Can be where acoustical gaskets come into engage. 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 real estate cinema installation, would figure out how close the actual sound performance of the door, stomach to the published order. A hi-end home cinema design should take every detail into consideration, to ensure a hi-end acoustical end result.
