The reference level of ones soundtrack is 105db and 115db for the LFE channel. Most people would find these levels quite high, but not hard 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 non commercial installation, quite often we find bedrooms and other living areas to be right next to your 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 towards the 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 cross any opening with very little claim. And to top it off, a tiny hole in a barrier would transmit almost as much sound being a much larger hole. This acoustic property of sound could be a big problem in a residential cinema installation, where high quality construction is required. Which is where acoustical gaskets come into appreciate. A Home Cinemas St Albans cinema door, in order to be effective, the seals around the head, jamb and sill must be complete and air-tight.
In other words, exact same of the acoustical gasket in a place cinema installation, would see how close a lot more sound performance of the door, arrives to the published standard. A hi-end home cinema design should take every piece of information into consideration, to ensure a hi-end acoustical result.
