Noise Complaints

I just received my first one after living in the same apartment unit for FOUR years. I was gonna move out this summer anyways and find a roommate because my rent is becoming unpayable, but man, I hate people sometimes.

I didn't even have my Paradigm loudspeakers on, the complaint was from my computer speakers. I don't even understand. Well I guess I kinda do, it was probably the low frequencies from my sub. But why now? The dude beside me moved in like a year ago and I've had my speakers and sub on constantly since then. I've also had many gatherings/pre-parties before then. During the afternoon, nighttime, sometimes for lengthy periods of time, and I didn't receive one then. Why now for such a small loudness issue? It was at a normal listening volume. Ugh. Or am I just a bad person playing my music too loud.

What are your stories re: noise complaints? I wanna read interesting stuff before Game of Thrones starts in t-minus 1.5 hours.

i dont have any sound advice here. im probably pissing off my neighbours a lot, but im trying to use my cans more. if you can meet him in the hall or something, try to have a chat about it, and ask politely if you're being to loud if so when. hopefully they're not the passive type. my neighbours are pretty cool i guess.

I posted a similar thread about 2 months ago, or maybe I just posted it in a thread. I, too, had my first noise complaint. I'd been really careful with the noise since moving in. For about 2 months, though, the apartment adjacent to mine was empty. There's one on the other side, but it isn't directly bordering me, I think, or not in the same way. Anyway, I had been a bit louder for some time. I didn't even know people moved in next door until I got a noise complaint. They complained on the first night they moved in. Multiple times, apparently. That was kind of shitty, because the guy who lived next door to me before sort of had an understanding with me -- anytime I was too loud he'd come let me know and I'd turn it off.

Since that first complaint, I've gotten 2 more. Both, fortunately, were the type where the place sends a security guard to check it out instead of just emailing me crudely the next morning. Both times the security guard knocked after standing outside for 10 minutes to tell me 'listen i got a noise complaint...but i don't hear anything. sorry to bother you.'

as you hypothesized, it was the bass for me too. They must've just been hearing the lows somehow. I feel bad but...why shouldn't I be able to play music loud enough so that I can hear it through my whole apartment? I have the bass on my speakers turned literally all the way down, but there's still some. fuck it.

Unless you live in concrete building or put sound padding all over your apartment, you're gonna be dealing with noise leakage no matter what. My old apartment, it didn't matter because it was right at a busy intersection so there was noise all the time (still, some folks complained when an emo-singin' drummer in my building would jam for a bit).

My current place is the complete opposite - the only outside noise comes from the occasional low-flying plane in the middle of the night. Within the first week I realized the bass from my decade-old stereo system was encroaching on all my neighbours, some of which are 50+. No choice but to go the headphones route whenever I want to enjoy music or movies at full volume.

If you get to know you're neighbors, you can avoid it.

Unless they're bitches and call the cops/landlord instead of knocking on your door.

I remember in the military I passed out drunk with my system on max multiple times in the barracks and they finally confiscated it for a month. I didn't learn my lesson.

Good times.

Apartments are the suck idd.

I just feel really angry how he didn't come and knock on my door so we could deal with it like adults. I mean I'm a pretty nice guy who will take other people's considerations into account and not be a total asshole.

I just hate people who go over my head and report to the "authorities" instantly. I guess that's kind of normal for people to do however, since they don't like confrontations. So it's up to me to go knock on his door and solve this amicably, but I feel he might not even want to do it that way, since he already tried to solve it by going to the "powers that be".

Bleh.

Confront him anyway - better just one passive-aggressive person than two.
