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 a residential installation, quite often we find bedrooms and other living areas to be right next on the home cinema room. Special room construction techniques allow us develop a sufficient noise barrier, in order to reduce any sound transmission to the 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 to the passage of any sound waves. A door’s ability to lessen noise is offered by 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 claim. And to top it off, a tiny hole in a barrier would transmit nearly as much sound as being a much larger golf hole. This acoustic property of sound could be a big problem in a residential cinema installation, where high quality construction is required. In the area 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 actual of the acoustical gasket in a home cinema installation, would figure out how close the actual sound performance of the door, can come to the published order. A hi-end Home Cinema Installation Hertfordshire cinema design should take every piece of information into consideration, to ensure a hi-end acoustical conclude.
