Acoustical Concerns in Home Theaters

Custom home theaters often have two acoustic problems. The first concern is reducing sound transmission to adjoining rooms. This problem can usually be solved by using sound barriers, or isolation materials, such as Quiet Glue or Green Glue, between the drywall.

The second concern is improving the sound quality within the home theater room itself. Ideally, each seat within the theater should have clear, high quality and fully intelligible sound.

Sound absorption treatments placed throughout the room will minimize acoustic room distortions and help produce enjoyable, unblemished sound.

Acoustical Products Used in Home Theaters

Acoustic Panels can help with the control of early reflections, flutter echo, and room reverberation. It is not necessary to cover every surface with acoustic panels, but beginning with first reflection points is a good place to start.

Low frequency sound, or bass, has long wavelengths and is susceptible to “piling up” in some areas and canceling itself out in others. This can produce uneven bass from one seating location to another. Corner Traps, Acoustic Foam Corner Bass Traps, and our 4" Bass Traps will help stabilize the low frequency distortion caused by these standing waves.

For a unique look, our Art Acoustic Panels can print any image, movie poster, or photo on high quality graphic material. Be creative with your favorite movie scenes, family portraits or abstract art.
