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

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

However, doors generally been the weakest point, in this kind 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 available from its Sound transmission Class. This means, the higher in the Class the better the efficiency.

One more problem arises though; Sound waves can cross any opening with very little claim. And to top it off, a tiny hole in a barrier would transmit almost as much sound for a much larger golf hole. This acoustic property of sound could be a significant problem in your property cinema installation, where high quality construction is required. In the area where acoustical gaskets come into engage. 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, exact same of the acoustical gasket in a Home Cinemas Hertfordshire cinema installation, would see how close specific sound performance of the door, will come to the published standard. A hi-end home cinema design should take everything into consideration, to ensure a hi-end acoustical conclude.
