soundproofing bed from bass music 2 floors down
« on: November 20, 2019, 09:11:10 PM »
I'm on the 3rd floor and my neighbor directly down on the 1st floor often plays loud music in the middle of the night which makes it hard to sleep. It's only the bass from the subwoofer that is bothersome.

I'm thinking of adding some Mass Loaded Vinyl directly underneath my bed to block the bass sound. Will this work if I only cover the space underneath my bed and not the whole floor?

I find the sound most bothersome when I'm lying on my side with my ear directly pressed into the pillow (which is how I usually sleep). The sound seems to be transmitted directly through the floor -> bed -> my ears. I'm hoping some MLV would block this sound transmission
