I like playing loud bass heavy music but I have some problems with a neighbour hearing much of the bass through the wall. I have painted a picture of the situation.
The colors are indentified as:
- Orange = Speaker
- Green = Area where a lot of bass gets trapped, I think the correct term for this phenomenon is superposition of the sound waves.
- Yellow = Neighbour experiencing the bass through the wall
All the outer walls are about 15 cm (6 inches) thick concrete. I am not very experienced with sound and acoustics but I have gotten the impression that there might be some solutions to my problem, bass traps etc. How would these help me and is it possible to build my own as the cost is very high? The two active speakers stand on a desk.
