Title: Muting a crazy loud alarm siren
Post by: nightofjoy on April 25, 2016, 12:54:11 AM
Hi

We're just moving into a new flat. It's in an old building, made up of maybe 8 apartments, each has it's own sensors and glass-smash boxes for the alarm, but when the alarm goes off - it sounds in each of the flats simultaneously via red siren boxes on the interior walls.

Now I haven't heard this go off, yet, but I've been warned that it's insanely loud.

I have bad nerves, and this is likely to send me through the ceiling or flat out kill me.

I was wondering if anyone on here might be able to offer advice on how I might be able to lessen the alarm noise by creating some kind of mute box to place over it? Not to try to block the sound, but just take the edge off it a little. It would pose no risk, making it slightly quieter, as apparently when it goes off you can hear it from space.

Thanks in advance.

You should try to make wooden boxes to cover the noise. You can choose to open the size of the channel itself.
