First, Build it Right - Home Theater Soundproofing
There's 'traditional soundproofing' and there's 'audio soundproofing'.
Either method of soundproofing will keep the sound from coming in or leaving the room. But, while one will improve and enhance the listening experience, the other type will wreak havoc on even the finest audio playback system.
Do you know the difference between the two? We do.
For over 20 years, we have been helping to build some of the world's finest Recording Studios and dedicated Hi-Fi Listening Rooms. Our engineers have designed the 'gold standard' in audio reproduction soundproofing walls. The Iso-Wall system not only blocks sound, it helps to condition and absorb unwanted low-frequency sound reflections--minimizing room modes and standing waves.
Second, Maximize the Listening Experience - Home Theater Room Acoustics
Just like a music performance hall, a home theater room needs to be designed to minimize acoustic room distortions. Each seat in the theater should have crystal clear sound, and the sound system should be able to be played back at it's optimal performance levels.
A theater room without acoustic treatments, would be comparable to a symphony playing in a gymnasium--versus a concert hall. In the concert hall, the sound will be engaging and enveloping to the audiance. In the gymnasium, it will sound distorted, overpowering, and lack clarity. Custom Home Theater Designers have known for years the value of including room acoustics into their plans.
