Thinking of setting up an auditorium home theatre, but don’t know where to begin?
A room may include all the necessary audio-visual setup, a large display, surround sound
speakers, and comfy cinema seats. Yet if the acoustic treatment is absent, it won’t feel
realistically immersive like an actual auditorium sound system should.
You might think the lack of a minute element in assembling an auditorium setup at home
won’t make much difference. What do acoustic panels do anyway, right?
Just like watching a horror movie on mute won’t have any impact on you, without proper
sound, the efforts put into the visuals go in vain. To make it clearer, we’ve got four main
reasons why acoustic treatments are equally as important.
THE NEED FOR ACOUSTICS
· Viewing Experience-
Acoustic elements in consideration of your viewing experience, ultimately either make or
break your watching experience as a whole. If the sound effects are muffled while
watching a movie, or it doesn’t feel like you’re one of the players on the ground while
watching a football game, getting distracted or disinterested is pretty easy. If you put in
the money for the heaviest of equipment and neglect the usage of the acoustics in the
home auditorium sound system, it basically loses its value.
Covering a broad spectrum from the deepest rumbling bass notes to high-pitched tinkling
bell, the human sounds in an auditorium fall somewhere in between. When dialogues with
a low tone are emitted, they bounce against the walls and build up in certain areas. This
reflection distorts the sound by either making it more pronounced or underwhelming,
making it difficult for you to follow through the plot.
Here is where foam or fibreglass treatment comes into play, and absorbs or scatter the
sound waves as required.
Different from an echo, which happens when a sound is reflected with a delay so long
you feel like you’re hearing the same sound again, reverb is quicker. This is when you
hear the sound bouncing off the walls and the ceiling at the same time.
During the in-home audio installation, equipment in the corners of the room, usually
three in number, anchored by a simple square foam block, traps the bass will trap the
lower toned signals in the ridges of the panel until the energy is dissipated, not bounced
back to you.
Two or three inches of soft material in the auditorium walls from the different types of
panels, absorbers and deflectors reduces the bouncing off of all surfaces above, on the
sides or diagonally, and leads the sound directly to your ears. On top of that, it isolates
your auditorium from the sounds of the outside world, so that there are no disturbances in
your movie nights.
