Here is my simple dilemma. With my lifestyle and the housing market being as it is, I am contemplating purchasing a condo. I am looking at an end unit in this complex that is very unique...every unit is basically a side by side duplex. I normally listen to music and HT at modest levels, but occasionally let the dogs out to howl. From what I can tell, my main living area would border my neighbors. Is there any way that I can investigate the building's construction to find out whether or not sound (mainly from the subwoofer) would be an issue? I know this gets brought up here a lot in regards to sound levels and courtesy, but I am normally asking. You would think that most developers would realize that two neighboring walls should be constructed in a way to minimize sound between the two units, but I'm sure that is not always the case. Does anyone have any horror stories or success stories they want to share or any advice? I would hate to purchase a place and be severely limited in the degree to which I can use my system. I know that not buying a home will limit me to some degree, but I don't want it to be the reason I rue my purchase. Thanks for any help!
