Home Cinema Installations and Great Transmission Through Doors

The reference level of ones 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 household audio visual installation St Albans, quite often we find bedrooms and other living areas to be right next to the home cinema nursery. Special room construction techniques allow us to build a sufficient noise barrier, in order to reduce any sound transmission on 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 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 traverse any opening with very little loss. And to top it off, a tiny hole in a barrier would transmit nearly as much sound being a much larger target. This acoustic property of sound could be an oversized problem in a home cinema installation, where high quality construction is required. That’s the where acoustical gaskets come into have. 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, the grade of of the acoustical gasket in a home cinema installation, would see how close a lot more sound performance of the door, can come to the published standard. A hi-end home cinema design should take the information into consideration, to ensure a hi-end acoustical end result.
