    Ok, so...
    I'm mad as hell and not going to take it any more.
    I'm SICK of the resident managers (directly below me) watching movies too damn loud. If I can hear your shit in my bedroom, which is at the opposite end of your livingroom, IT'S TOO FUCKING LOUD. They just don't seem to realize other people live around them.
    I'm tired of complaining, it doesn't help so I think about an hour long 30hz test tone on my shiva DIY will do 3 things
    1)annoy the piss out of them
    2)drown out their shit so I don't have to hear it
    I guess I can edit a wav to loop as long as I want, so length isn't too important.
    I had like a 23-46hz sweep disc, and at my old house around 30hz would shake every window in the house, even at low volume, maybe even low enough they wouldn't hear it.. [​IMG]

    Ah, found one. Found a rar of 15 second wav files from 12hz on up, at each 1 hz increase. Just put 99 on a CD and OH MY GOD is it effective [​IMG]

    That question would be better put to Dan Wiggins, Greg Monfort or the like in the DIY Advanced area. I think the problem is a constant sine wave is quite different from regular source material and can build up heat very quickly. Excessive heat being bad for the voice coils.

    Yes, sine waves can heat a driver to the point of failure if done for too long. You might try a repeated 'pulse' instead. Try downloading Stomper Ultra and playing with it, it's a bass/drum beat synthesizer program. Try a nice loud 30Hz pulse every 5-10 seconds. Safer and probably more annoying than a pure sine.

    One method used in the dorms was to put a pillow on the floor, and drop a bowling ball on it from the top bunk.
