    From the 3rd floor..

    I'm on the ground floor..

    They complained to management as they didn't know where it came from...

    Management told me, cause they know of the sub...

    I'm so proud ;)

    SVS, I bow down to your rumblings.

    The trouble with complaining, once it starts it doesn't stop and normally gets worse.Just pray they don't find its you.

    or consider some sort of slab isolation for the sub. I would agree that you may have trouble now, given that someone knows what to listen for, it will be much more in their minds to do so!

    Why not go up to them and complain about the noise and tell them that you thought it was coming from them. That should allay their suspicions.

    Do what I did, sell your old kit to your neighbour when you upgrade. Now neither of us can complain about excessive noise.:D

    You’re not wrong Dimmy. His flat is directly above mine so it is funny for us when we play the game. The other flat is occupied by a lunatic who says we can make as much noise as we can. As long as we don't complain when he fires up the generator in his garage. Good neighbours are a godsend.

    Why not go and apologise? They are more likely to forgive you and hopefully be a little more tolerant next!

    Ask them when they usually go out, Tuesday evenings, Saturday afternoons ?
    If they have a regular slot when they are out, make use of that time for sessions. :cool:
