I own a Marantz SR 6200 receiver and PSB Image 6T front speakers, 9C center, 2B surrounds and a Mirage BPS-400 subwoofer. Needless to say, in my 14' by 12.5' room, the volume I can reach is more than loud enough for my tastes. Here is my question, as my understanding of apartments and townhomes is limited. I recall some who say they can't listen loud in their apartment, and then again, I recall others who have played music very loud without problems. So I am looking for feedback from HT and Audio system owners who live in apartments. When I move, I may be moving into an apartment, an apartment condo or a townhome. What am I to expect in terms of how loud I can play my music, and loud I can have my subwoofer? What I want to hear from, is how many people out there are severely compromised by their apartment and have to listen much lower than they might otherwise listen in a house? Also, I'd like to hear from people who feel they are able to listen to their equipment at very high volumes in their apartments and they are not compromised at all. I am wondering what the possibilities are. How can I test an apartment for its ability to allow me to play music loud without disturbing neighbours? Any feedback is appreciated.
