Home Cinema Installations and Sounds 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 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 to build a sufficient noise barrier, in order to reduce any sound transmission on the adjacent rooms.

However, doors continually been the weakest point, in this attempt. The mass, damping and stiffness of the home cinema door will determine its resistance for the passage of any sound waves. A door’s ability to lessen noise is you can find at its Sound transmission Class. This means, the higher in the Class the better the efficiency.

One more problem arises though; Sound waves can travel through any opening with very little claim. And to top it off, a tiny hole in a barrier would transmit almost as much sound as a much larger golf hole. This acoustic property of sound could be a problem in a residential cinema installation, where high quality construction is required. That’s the where acoustical gaskets come into appreciate. A home cinema door, in order 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 see how close the particular sound performance of the door, stomach to the published order. A hi-end Home Cinemas Hertfordshire cinema design should take the information into consideration, to ensure a hi-end acoustical conclude.
