Got the speakers in on Tuesday and rushed home to get them all hooked up for a test run, no mounting yet just cables and moved them to the areas they will be in and cranked it up pretty loud, they are very clear and crisp was enjoying the blasting of bass and clarity of the music for about 5 minutes when I thought I heard my doorbell ring and confirmed that it was the doorbell when I turned the blasting down to find one of the kids had already opened the door and standing there is my new neighbor (we just moved in 3 weeks ago) in her robe with a disgruntled look on her face asking me to turn the bass down because her master bedroom is next to our house and she is trying to go to sleep and all she can hear is "boom" "boom" "boom". I thought it must be getting late or at least well after 10PM but when I checked the clock it was only 945pm...So now I am tasked with another project of sound proofing the wall between our houses, I am guessing some quiterock over the existing sheet rock should do the trick, hoping so anyway. If anyone is wondering about the Polk Audio PSW 505 Sub I can attest it is fully capable of upsetting your neighbors!!
I have the "screen" almost finished on my 4th application of compound to smooth out the old textured wall and its coming out very nice, tonight I will finish the few spots that need touched up and hopefully have time to sand it smooth and get some primer on it early tomorrow. We did watch Thursday night football on just the wall with the dried joint compound last night and even with just that the picture was still amazing so I am really looking forward to how its going to look with the silver screen up.
If anyone has any suggestions on soundproofing a wall between neighboring homes they are much appreciated!!
