Kinetic Noise COntrol
If you are going the extra mile to add a high-quality home theatre to your property, correct soundproofing is going to be a key issue. To keep the rest of your household and neighbours happy, you will want to find the best way for your home. Kinetic noise control also emcompasses designing and manufacturing innovative products to control noise as well as vibration.
How does sound proofing work?
The sound of you favourite band or the deep bass sounds from your audio system during a cinematic alien invasion are great in your home theatre but they can also be unwanted noise when invading other parts of your home.
Acoustical privacy in your living areas is possible with sound isolation technologies. Kinetics’ full line of wall, ceiling, and floor isolation products control wanted sound between your home theatre and the rest of your home.
With over 50 years of experience, Kinetics has been the world leader in manufacturing sound-isolation products that control unwanted noise in residential, manufacturing, and commercial environments.
When installing sound proofing into a home theatre, there is different methods and mounts you can use. Resilient mounts, also known as sound isolation clips, are used as a way of isolating the shock and vibration produced. Done effectively, this will reduce the sound that transfers from the plasterboard through the stud and out the other side. Often rubber is used for soundproofing and noise reduction.
Our model SN Mounts are custom designed for each application, and are top of the range. SN mounts are designed isolate the shock of heavy duty equipment operating at up to 600 strokes per minute, and with foot bearing loads up to 1000 psi (69 bar). Used in a home theatre, they will create optimum sound reduction.
Model SN mounts incorporate Kinetics high density precompressed molded fiber glass isolation pads or Kinetics Flexoply/Flexco pads bonded to a steel load plate and sized to match the feet of the supported equipment. They can also be used on uneven floors.

DEALING WITH HDR
High Dynamic Range (HDR) has introduced a significant set of problems for most projection systems. The reality is that most projector systems are not producing any more than 50 nits, however the HDR standard requires systems to be able to handle over 2,500 nits. This requires a conversion process to be applied to the signal and that HDR settings potentially need to be turned off in the projector/ TV system. While Blu-Ray players such as Sony and Panasonic have this conversion, the quality of the conversion is not ideal, and we highly recommend using a Lumagen to correct this and other problems in any high-end video system.
