Question--how to not annoy the neighbors


Recommended Posts

Also elevate your amp a few feet off the floor. You get a theoretical 3dB bump on lower frequencies with the floor couple.

Hook up a CD player to your 4x10 and wait until 3am when they're asleep. Play "Vasoline" (STP) or "Suck My Kiss" (RHCP). That may not solve the problem but it might make you feel better.

:D My personal choice was the first movement of "The Firebird Suite" by Igor Stravinsky, played at midnight on a 300-watt stereo system with Cerwin-Vega floor speakers. But your 4x10 will do the opening bass section justice.

I have a similar stereo system with a bit more power and Sony floor speakers instead of the C-Vs. If it weren't for my other neighbors I'd just crank some vicious death metal and leave the apartment for a few hours.


Alas, I have to be a grown-up.
