I have a neighbour that has sex every night and we share a wall which is paper thin. So far I have thought of duct-taping the wall or ruberized paint. But i dont have much money. What can I do? Inb4 earplugs

The first step is to stop being retarded. You need to buy a roll of Mass Loaded Vinyl and nail sheets of it to your wall. The heavier the vinyl, the more it will insulate sound. DO NOT buy those dumb fucking foam squares from Amazon meant for sound booths. Those only prevent echoing.

Playback the inveresed sound wave to cancel it out. The technique is called ACTIVE NOISE CANCELATION.

Go to a salvation army dumpster and get the rejected clothes from it, Then shred them with scissors. Make a false wall and stuff it with the clothes shreds. It might block some sound.

Only if you want to do it right and live in a room that it looks like a human inhabits it. But since you apparently live in a crack house and were seriously considering duct tape, you're probably fine with installing it over the drywall.

Very doubtful that OP owns his apartment lol
He can't just start tearing walls down.
Not to mention, cuckbox dwellers normally have rules and regulations on what they're allowed to do with their walls.

The correct answer is to inform your landlord that your apartment is unusable and seek remedy with them.

>> No.2584710

Basically, mass has to be added in the path of the sound. Soundproofing one wall usually doesn't do much unless the rest of the house is concrete.
The cheapest, yet somewhat effective thing is to glue additional dry wall sheets on the wall. Thick sheets, hanging entirely in silicone. Google "green goo" for the technique, but you can use silicone instead.

You can't, unless you are willing to build an entire room inside your room. Look it up. Sorry. Go confront them and complain about it to your landlord, and tell your neighbors you are doing so. You're gonna fuck up their personal life, but they'll probably quiet down too.

>> No.2584907

>>2582828
As you can see OP, the second necessary ingredient is literal air inbetween the vinyl and the other layer of vinyl. You need that in order for the sound waves to not vibrate through the surface. Also, good fucking luck with low frequency.

Also, command strips with acoustic foam will dampen some of the noise.

1. Make a complaint to the apartment manager.
2. Use a large box fan to drown out the noise.
3. Sleep in a different room of your apartment such as the living room.
