My wife and I are moving into a new place and it just so happens that our theater room is going to be right above the woman who lives downstairs bedroom. My setup is Energy take classics 5.1, and a Pioneer 1020k. In my current apartment I have never had one complaint from any of my neighboors about noise. I am not one to turn the system up that loud. It is very rare if the dial ever goes past -20db.


I know every apartnment is different as is all your neighboors and there tolerance to noise. I have already spoken with the woman (who seem to be laid back) and notified her what I plan on doing with the room, and if it is ever to loud to let me know. I also said we will run a test to see where the sound gets to loud. She seemed to really appreciate that so we are off to a good start. The woman said she could not really hear the former people that lived above her, but can hear the floors squeak when people walk sometimes. The former person who lived in the unit we are moving into had their baby in the room where our theater will be which can be loud, but not home theater loud. The new room is 12'x11', with hard wood floors. I am placing a 6'x8' throw rug on the floor. There will be 4 movies posters on the walls, as well as other equipment in the room and two home theater chairs.


After all of that my question is: in theory how much help will the auralex subdude and adding several of the ATS acustic pannels in keeping the sound out of her bedroom and the peace between us?

Subdude will help decouple sub from floor.


While useful for what they're made for, I don't see the panels helping much.


Get an SPL meter if you don't have one.


Try the sub nearfield so you can turn it down and get the same bass level at your listening position.
