Sound Isolation Device

Hi folks,

I'm living in an apartment, and I have the home audio and video setup of 2 5.1 systems. The problem here is that I can not enjoy the sound really well to its best capacity without bothering my neighbors since this is a wall to wall apartment. The bass really a pain for them sometimes as I 've got some conplains about it.

So, any one know if out there have sound isolation devices that can reduce largely the sound to my neighbor?

not much you can do

I can't imagine they will let you remodel your suite, nor that you want to go to that expense. Sound isolation or control, done correctly isn't easy or cheap.
You need to move (or might be asked to soon enough).

google, there are A LOT of guides out there


things like adding a rug (if you have hard wood floors) or drapes on your windows are the really basic. they make a lot of stuff just for that too...

the idea that you want is to have something that "absorbs" the sound
