    Great tips, I also use a product call MACK'S Soft Foam Earplugs (they have different noise reduction ratings, I got the best rated ones available). Used to live near a family for 3 years, they have 2 babies who would scream their guts out 1AM-5AM, this product kept my sanity. If you decide to use it regularly do make sure to clean your ear canal for earwax though.

      I (try) to record videos for youtube and my bedroom(also my makeshift recording studio) overlooks the road leading onto my street which also happens to be the road leading into the highstreet one way and the local primary school the other so cars are constantly driving past and my next door neighbour, no word of a lie, feels the need to mow his front lawn every single day. That combined with living in a semi-detached house with neighbours on either side and having a family of six including a 7 and 9 year old the struggle is far too real

    I need to muffle loud motorcycle and pickup truck noise. I don't understand how they're allowed to have exhaust that loud when they will pull you over for loud music, the exhausts on the vehicles are much louder most of the time.

    • GrandWizardBob
      GrandWizardBob 2 года назад

      +Mr Hakido I dont disagree on the issue of breaking the law. Safety justifies being noisy as long as you are within the restrictions of your area. I know how the measurements work for it that's why mine is how it is. I am not here to debate people breaking EPA laws, if they are doing so then that sucks and I have provided you with options. But you need to understand how loud 90db is, AND how certain frequencies affect your building. A long stroke engine may cause your walls to vibrate and amplify the sound. So the exhaust may be legal but your building acts as an amp. At the end of the day you have 2 options. Talk to the police or get the acoustics right in your home. Just understand its only 1% of bikes or trucks that fall into the illegal category. Hope the tips help, good luck with getting your acoustics right.

    • Mr Explorer
      Mr Explorer 2 года назад

      +MrInvisiblecrayon Thanks for the tips on how to sound proof. When I get some extra cash I may do that. The problem is even if its for 5 secs, if everyone is doing that in my city then how long is it really? 5 secs and a couple hundred people adds up. If it comes down to your safety, don't ride a bike. Lots of people don't have the choice to not ride because they died, even with that loud muffler. You might be a sound engineer and a smart guy but its a logical fallacy to think that safety justifies being noisy. As far as the decibel level I think its 80db in the US but they don't abide by it. www.epa.gov/laws-regulations/summary-noise-control-act
      Its not the idle db that you go by either if that's when you're is at 90db. When the throttle goes up when accelerating that would be the key point to measure.
      I've talked to police about it and I think they told the bikers to not ride on my street as they have a bar a mile away. For some reason they felt the need to ride through a residential area many times a day. I still have the problem of the guys in the douchebag trucks and other cars with loud exhaust. I understand why its so dangerous driving a bike which is why i chose not to have a bike. Its not that I don't understand the problem, its that I disagree with breaking the law to combat this problem while irritating everyone that comes close to it. These powerful delusions noise polluters are under are going to have to be thwarted in order for our societies to function. Much sleep is lost and quality of life goes down because of noise pollution. There have been studies about how damaging loud noise but you're not fully aware of it. Even you riding the bike are doing damage to yourself.

    • GrandWizardBob
      GrandWizardBob 2 года назад +1

      +Mr Hakido Assuming you're looking up sound conditioning because this is happening frequently at your residence I would suggest a few things to help your home be silent on the inside. Firstly, install weather stripping on EVERY window and door. Fill any gaps you can find where air could get in. Install heavy curtains. If you have the money look into double or triple glazed argon filled windows.A cheaper alternative is to run Gaffers tape across your windows in an X shape, it stops your glass from vibrating as much thus letting less sound pass. Base traps can also help especially if they are long stroke engines. If you're on the ground level try putting in a hedge. Again depending on finances, rip the wall open and install sound deadening insulation.

    • GrandWizardBob
      GrandWizardBob 2 года назад

      +Mr Hakido Some info about me first, I ride a bike. My pipes are 89db. 1db less than the legal limit where i'm from. I am also an Audio Engineer. So what you're saying is, don't be safe if it is going to infringe on someones peace and quiet for the 5 seconds it takes to ride past? Bike riding isn't dangerous if people are aware of you being on the road. But that's the problem, to many people don't pay attention on the road and run into bikes because they don't see them. The reason most police officers don't pull over bikes here in Australia vs loud music is because our police recognise the exhaust on a bike is making drivers aware of the bikes around them, ALTHOUGH along cafe strips and tourist spots they will book you if your'e over 90db as most of the time they sit their idling and disturbing the peace. The other factor you need to consider is 90db is very loud, check the laws in your area. Most of the time exhausts can be considerably louder than music. If you have issues with bikes in your area maybe you should speak to the police about it. Or better yet, learn to ride a bike and understand why we have exhausts which are tuned up.

    Amazing video my friend. If I put some curtains on some walls and some bass traps on the corners will it reduce the noise of my Sony 1000W home cinema, so I won't wake up my neighbor next door?

    • Against the Grain
      Against the Grain  3 года назад

      You might need something more heavy duty than that. It all depends on how loud you put it I guess. You might need to build some additional Mass vinyl curtains and add them to the wall to add some mass (That's usually what they put in between walls for sound insulation).. They are relatively inexpensive and I made my own for a couple hundred backs. At the very least though you will find the bass traps will clean out the acoustics in your sound (Depending on how contained your room is). As I noticed a clearer and less distorted sound from my stereo when played in the study room. When all else fails, rugs can also make a huge difference since it keeps the sound from bouncing off the walls and echoing further. Good luck!

      Best that you call them for a custom quote. But it is an investment into your own home that can cost money. However you could always opt a do it yourself approach by building your own acrlylic and attaching magnets to them. But you'd have to put in the time and research to understand the proper air gap needed for insulation (Believe has to be around 2.5 inches to make air pocket to trap air and sound). There a few other companies like Greenworks in Toronto, along with magnetite in the US. I didn't really shop it around and compare prices.
