    normally i play music every other day and my neighbors keep complaining, i havent been putting it as loud as i do because one of them is ill, yet they still complain, its not even late at night. how can i soundproof the whole room so i can put it up to higher volumes. oh and the walls in these houses i live in are like paper, you can punch holes in them.

    I don't know how you would go about it with out making the room really unsightly but you can use egg-crate foam on the walls.

    Put up posters around your area saying that your neighbours are nonces, drive them out of the area.

    Foam tiles like that wont really help keep noise down, they'll only absorb high frequencies that wont be causing problems anyway.

    Unfortunately, isolating sound doesnt come cheap or easy, as absorbing low frequencies requires a lot of mass.

    Simple (and maybe annoying) as it sounds, the easiest way is to just turn down. If its loud enough to annoy people next door, then its loud enough to listen to!

    I'm not sure about the whole noise pollution thing.

    But i don't think there's much they can do unless you're blasting your music full pelt all day (or after 11pm).

    But seeing as you say they're alright then maybe you can unhook your sub? Sometimes it's the bass that's the real killer.

    I, for example can rinse out for 3 hours, full blast through my speakers an i've never had a complaint from teh people living in the flat below, above or side of me. I put this down to me keeping the bass slightly lower than standard (and also the people living in the flat next to me make more noise arguing than a mortar shelling in WW2)

    switch your computer off and turn it up so loud you cant hear the door or the phone.

    I have a lovely next door neighbour, when I blast out some music in the gap between songs I hear the sound of horse racing equally as loud. So I turn it up to 11.

    they wont take it to authority because a adoption officer or something told them you can tell the police and they will do something about, so she told him to fuck off. its not on full blast i can still slightly hear the tv. it must be the bass because she told me its bouncing off her wall, ive turned the bass all the way down, and the floorstanders are on a higher gain to the sub.

    I assume so. I would save the touching for after the neighbors stop complaining as premature touching could lead to a class action lawsuit and no lolz for either side. Statistics show that touching a kid when there are no problems between the owner and the toucher will be lolz.

    If only this had all happened last year then you could have enticed the neighbours to touch you.

    Kill the next person who offers too little and then the people will know you're no fucking joke.

    Tackle that doggy with your cock, but mind the rules with the children as stated before.
