Re: How to Lessen Transmission of bass from my Sub-woofer to apt below

Make you neighbor your friend and or band member.

seriously attached housing and loud sounds do not mix. EVER!

Lived in a townhome with a great Guitar player next door and loved the music was a good friend with him and the band, but there were nights when the kids were sleeping the wife had worked 24 hours straight in the ICU and well we wanted quiet. but THE BAND had showed up and was playing next door in the basement and at 3am well it was an issue that only got worse. I even was tired.

We ended up moving, not because of the band but I hate townhouse attached living!

Good luck.

Try headphones.

Re: How to Lessen Transmission of bass from my Sub-woofer to apt below

As others have said, get the sub off the floor and onto some soft pads. The pro stuff is probably best, but just regular old pillows might be good enough.

With the sub on the floor, sound is conducting directly to and through the floor. Something soft between the sub and the floor will lessen this conduction. Still, the sound waves will radiate and move the floor, and bounce off walls, but at least you can reduce the *conducted* energy in this way.

It should help, but maybe not enough. -ERD50
