Okay, I have some questions which I think can help us help you. You think or know they are using wireless setups? What kind and what frequency? What kind of modulation? Does the signal interfere with anything that you have? If you are successful as jamming their wireless setup, what keeps them from going to a wired setup? Is the building metal and would a wireless system work inside a metal building, or between sections of it?
Don't know the type or frequency. We are at opposite ends of a metal shell building with normal wood framed walls and another tenant who gets to hear their spew louder than I, in between. See reply to Tom Gardner for the best description of the 'music' that I could come up with.
The noise interferes with my sensitivities, phone & such is not an issue.
Have you offered the fine gentlemen some eggcrate foam or sound proofing sheets available from the hardware store? By making the offer, it helps them understand that you personally don't care for the music but are willing to work with them. They might appreciate the feedback (used specifically) and learn to tone it down or muffle it better. Talk to your dad and see what you can work out. The key here is to work _with_ them "nicely" before you attempt to work _against_ them.
'Daddy' is letting them use the place to do their thing. Talked with a phone repairman a few months ago who has a shop a few miles from here for his racecar habit. He said they used to be next door to him and it was a pain in the ass to get them to put up some soundproofing, which had some, but limited, effect. I don't want to stir too much shit for various reasons. Just some occasional consternation for the comedic enjoyment of my next door neighbor and I.
If, and I use this as assuming you are able to obtain the same type of wireless units as they are using, you can set it up for feedback, so that the output of the receiver transmits what the receiver hears, thus that horrible squeal. I'm not sure if different transmitters have some kind of ID coding or they work on different frequencies, so you'll have to get some more information about what they're using.
Then again Time-Life put out a CD called Thunderous Classics (or something) that I really like. Ride of the Valkyries by Wagner(you'll hear it on Apocalypse Now during the helicopter assault scene) and 1812 Overture are just a couple. Crank it up really loud, and it will wake the dead, and even knock a few things off the walls. Be careful, you and them both might come to like it!
Hey now, that is some cool shit! I don't have those particular items in my collection, but some Mendelssohn, Strauss, and some compilation discs of Handel, Schubert, Bach, etc., etc. I even have some Big Band, and Country/Western. Sadly, I sold my Voice of the Theater setup quite some years ago. If I hadn't, this thread would not exist.
Oh yes, Harold, I also have a smattering of jazz. Just a wee bit.
