I live in a unit complex with a neighbor above me. I recently bought a new sound system with subwoofer.
I usually watch action movies/thrillers starting at about 6pm until 8pm. I know my neighbor wakes early(around 5am) so thats why I cut the sound around 8pm so they can sleep.
My hearing is fairly sensitive so I can’t imagine my noise is unreasonable. They try to lead “by example” I guess and are dead quiet, until I start my noise up. Last night I hear stomping around, doors banging, but I continue my movie.
This morning he purposely woke me up at 5am by causing water hammer, doors banging and whatever else he can do. I imagine others next to him can also hear.
I’m not sure whether I should retaliate with all out war, my sound system($2000) can go about 4 times higher than I currently play, and I can also cause noise after 10pm when he is sleeping, also with accidental water hammer.
What would you do?
