    Default How to deal with a noisey neighbour

    So last night after 12 hours of boom, boom, boom since 7am!!! Yes 7am. I rang up the council to lodge a complaint, "Ok she said we are dealing with this matter now". With that the power went off

    So this a new way for the councils to deal with noise complaints

    Lets put it this way having heard the same tune of "love will save you" a few times in the day plus other repetative music. What do you think the noise was?

    Yes although I like my music loud I do realise other people don't like what I like so I make sure it can only be heard in my own house, I used to go outside and check but since my wife isn't into music it's not really a problem anymore.

    I hate being out in my garden and having to listen to others boom boom crap so noise control is useful from time to time

    The amazing thing about this Boom Boom music is that from a distance all you hear is a monotonous drum beat. When you go closer to the offending house you can actually hear music. I cannot understand why people in a domestic situation need a stereo with an oversized or overpowered speaker system. I have no objections to people having parties in their houses as long as they keep it quiet. I have often left parties where the music is so loud that you have to shout at the person next to you to be heard.

    People who play loud music during the day will use the excuse that, 'They need to relax'. This inconsideration unfortunately does not allow others in the neighbourhood to relax.

    I have often read in the newspaper social column where a person has been convicted of 'Intentional Damage', namely a stereo.

    Noise control is a good option for peace and quiet in the neighbourhood.

    Some years ago we had noisy neighbours 2 doors up the hill who used to take their radio tuner and speakers out on to their side balcony and blast us out. The problem was solved by beaming RF at them which overloaded the input stage to the tuner and effectively blanked reception. If they changed stations I tracked them. In the end I think they thought their radio always went faulty when taken outside

    I investigated the use of ultra-sonics for shattering CDs, but concluded too much power was required
