Tricky. Little bikes (ridden by kids) make more noise (they remove the baffles from the exhaust). As kids get older, they don't feel obliged to make as much noise, but they can afford a bigger bike. Despite this, the fall in noise is 20dB/decade.

The other way of looking at bike noise is to consider your neighbour's views on your super new subwoofer that is flat to 10Hz. You think it's wonderful, and your (visiting) friends think it's wonderful, but...

PS Yes, I used to be a biker.

I live in a flat, and I do not consider subwoofer appropriate
under such conditions. It not my neighbours having problems
with my subwoofer (which I doesn't even have) but rather me
having problems with theirs, which of course are too lousy
to even reproduce the noise they feed them with.

PS I guess most motorbikers behave well, but those who
don't can be quite irritating. Didn't mean to critisize any of
you.

Well, that's barking mad. Students only learn the week before an examination (I'll admit it, that's when I actually understood stuff), and final year exams are far more stressful than any others. Conversely, a new employee's worth is almost zero in their first few months. What are the employers thinking of?

Default I live in a flat...

Do unto others as you would have done unto you...

I'd love to crank up the (20Hz capable) system right now, but my neighbour hasn't made noises that upset me, and I don't want to encourage him.

I quite agree with you.

Actually, the new neighbours above me are quite noisy (although
I am very sensitive to disturbing sounds) so I have been playing
around with the thought of building the cheapest possible
super-duper subwoofer, not caring about how it sounds, run
this on full blow with the ordinary speakers disconnected and
then go for a walk.

I thought it was obvious I didn't seriously mean to do implement
that method. The problem is that I am extremely sensitive to
disturbing sounds and these people are making a lot of noise
of various kinds, but nothing really extreme, so I don't quite
feel I can complain about it.
