>Neighbor is pumping all kinds of bass one his shitty subwoofer
Do I go over and talk to him like a normal person or do I crank my speakers up to the limit and rattle the floor even worse?
I had a speaker war with the guy above me once. I ended up winning when I put the bass up and the pictures on the wall started rattling and he eventually shouted fuck you through the floor and left
What? If you don't have a shitty house, then you should be able to blast your music without pissing off anyone else.
Unless you're one of those morons who play it so loud that they give themselves hearing damage.
bass is extremely powerful and often nothing can stop it. And hearing damage unfortunately has nothing to do with it as the nature of bass. Treble will start causing damage way before. Almost always someone completely blasting me with their stereo doesnt even have the volume turned up that loud at all. The bass however needs to banned. Way too much power for the very vast majority of people to handle responsibly.
>often nothing can stop it
Except soundproofing. Bass coming from the sound system in my basement isn't a problem even in the rest of the house unless you put the volume to really ear-destroying levels for the intended listener. Like I said, stop having a shitty house.
Then give me phone numbers or anything I'm not kidding. It is extremely hard to soundproof against.
nb4 egg crate foam
and multi-million dollar homeowners here in town are flipping the fuck out over short term rentals because of house parties and bass.
Treble is extremely easy to sound proof against using egg crate, carpet, tile, etc. but not bass. Bass you basically have to build a whole other wall and that may be exactly why you're not experiencing problems. The only thing that can stop bass is material > air > material > air, etc. Treble can be stopped with one layer.
