Question about Bose Acoustimass 5 III System
Hi, I have the Bose Acoustimass 5 speaker system. Recently it has come to my attention that my neighbors in the flat below are always hearing the bass from the bass module. The module is place on the floor in the corner of the roof with one side against a couch, the other a foot away from a build in cupboard and the back of the unit against the wall. I have pulled the module away from the wall but was wondering it perhaps it should be in an upright position or if one can put foam / rubber or some sound absorbing material under the module so that the bass is softer on the floor? Would really appreciate your views. Many thanks.
Try a board with two screws through the front and one at the rear,set on the floor points down and then set your sub on top,this should help,also if you make 2or3 boards your bass should be tighter and not travel so much down to the flat below but will not go away,sorry but the only other thing you can do is buy ear plugs for your neighbours.
Hope this helps.

If the sub is not too heavy you can buy wall mount speaker brackets and mount the sub up by/on the ceiling in that corner. Just think of it as a mirror image of how it looks on the floor. When mounted this way you will still be taking advantage of the rooms acoustics, just like before, except your (downstairs) neighbors should be happier. The only problem is if your home is poorly insulated it could still "leak" down their walls. So it would help to use an outside wall as one or two of the walls that make your corner. Another option would be to move the sub to the middle of the room thus negating the positive effects you get from the sub being in the corner. It should, however, be a little less boomy and shouldn't travel as far.
