Home Cinema Installations and Great 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 difficult to listen to, in a correctly designed Home Cinema Installation Hertfordshire cinema room.

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

However, doors generally been the weakest point, in this 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 relieve noise is offered by its Sound transmission Class. This means, the higher inside Class the better the efficiency.

One more problem arises though; Sound waves can travel through any opening with very little harm. And to top it off, a tiny hole in a barrier would transmit almost as much sound as being a much larger hole. This acoustic property of sound could be a problem in a small cinema installation, where high quality construction is required. That’s the 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 real estate cinema installation, would figure out how close specific sound performance of the door, arrives to the published list of specifications. A hi-end home cinema design should take every detail into consideration, to ensure a hi-end acoustical stop result.
