Again I'm pushing the SandS doors.
After installation, I had a problem with the weather strips I installed dragging on the carpet. I removed them and found the increase in sound was minimal. Realistically, you're probably going to "leak" more sound through your air vents and return than you will through the small cracks around the door.
A qualifier here though, my theater door opens to the rest of the basement. If it were located in a more sensitive area (living room, etc), I might be more concerned.
I like spots idea above about bevelling the bottom of the door though. If I decide to reinstall the strips, I'll be doing that.
My theater build is like a fine wine... aging for a long time, but well worth the wait.
