The reference level of ones 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 Theater Installation St Albans cinema room.
A problem occurs though, when we face the challenge of keeping the noise inside the cinema room. In household installation, quite often we find bedrooms and other living areas to be right next for the home cinema environment. Special room construction techniques allow us put together a sufficient noise barrier, in order to reduce any sound transmission towards adjacent rooms.
However, doors have always been the weakest point, in such an 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 reduce noise is written by its Sound transmission Class. This means, the higher inside Class the better the efficiency.
One more problem arises though; Sound waves can cross any opening with very little impairment. And to top it off, a tiny hole in a barrier would transmit nearly as much sound for a much larger hole. This acoustic property of sound could be a problem in a building 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 place cinema installation, would determine how close the particular sound performance of the door, stomach to the published requirements. A hi-end home cinema design should take everything into consideration, to ensure a hi-end acoustical result.
