The reference level of one 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 Cinemas St Albans 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 to the home cinema environment. Special room construction techniques allow us create a sufficient noise barrier, in order to reduce any sound transmission towards adjacent rooms.
However, doors generally 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 cut back noise is you can find at its Sound transmission Class. This means, the higher within the Class the better the efficiency.
One more problem arises though; Sound waves can travel through any opening with very little loss. And to top it off, a tiny hole in a barrier would transmit nearly as much sound for a much larger emergency. This acoustic property of sound could be a problem in your property cinema installation, where high quality construction is required. That’s the where acoustical gaskets come into play. 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 grade of of the acoustical gasket in a home cinema installation, would see how close the actual sound performance of the door, will come to the published standard. A hi-end home cinema design should take every detail into consideration, to ensure a hi-end acoustical stop result.
