A powerful EMP generator, to disable (temporarily) stereos in my neighbors house.

Hey guys, I'm trying to build a portable EMP generator, which will be powerful enough to knock out (temporarily) my neighbors stereo (if he plays it on loud at midnight again). My setup is as follows: 8 330v 160uF Capacitors wired up in series. 8 330v charging circuits for the capacitors with their outputs in series wired to the capacitors through a switch. The 8 capacitors are wired up to a coil through a switch. The coil is made from 6 gauge wire (or a 1/16" copper strip) that is coiled 5 times. I would really appreciate any feedback because this is a fairly large undertaking for me, and i'm kind of nervous at working with over 2000v of electricity. Does anyone know if you can discharge a cpapcitor by throwing it into a swimming pool???

Some general points for readers new to this topic:

● If an EMP affects one neighbour, it will affect all neighbours, left, right, up, down.

● There is no such thing as a temporary EMP. Fried electronics stay fried.

● The use of such devices are probably illegal in your country. In many countries, they will count as weapons, and their use might contravene your country's anti terrorism laws.

● In all cases, you must attempt civilised negotiation, law enforcement agencies and court orders before resorting to actual attacks on your neighbours.

The ONLY thing you do by knocking on the neighbors door and asking them to turn it down is to put a target on your head. Now they know who to retaliate when the cops inevitably get called (if they even show up on a noise complaint for that matter). People only understand violence and force. If you overwhelm them right away it will end. If you try and be nice, it will go on forever and you will most likely loose.

Kiteman is correct 100%

Have you considered of moving under him get a discount on the rent first and set up a 1/2 hp vibrator screwed to the ceiling beams where he sleeps and get him to capitulate or move ((I know this worked))

The other is a very directional induction horn that induces hum to pink noise in his audio system run it on pi intervals.

Better yet the guy likes to play music so loud get a large sub and pump low frequency into this guys room under his bed.

have his house xrayed periodicly.

You are evil. Are you sure you are not my downstairs neighbor? Are you messing with my wifi? Actually, I can hear the guy snore in the adjoining house.

Oriental walls are so very thin...

Make a sound triggered arduino bot that plays annoying noises right back at them!

Even better yet, get an older 23 channel CB radio from a thrift store or
garage sale. Hook up a good 12v power supply and a slightly mismatched
mobile CB antenna to it. Place the unit on the wall nearest your
stupid neighbor's stereo. Now key the mic and say something like "turn
the d))) stereo down". The signal should copy onto the finals of their
stereo in a slightly audible fashion so they can hear it. I know
because this happens to the stereo in my upstairs bedroom when I key the
mic on the CB in my truck in the driveway. This is only good for about
10 to 20 feet, but it does work.

Ive been reading this for like 9 years now. Solutions range from everything from EMPs to Electronic warfare, to Xrays.

What ever happened to just knocking on his door and asking him to turn his stereo down? You dont have to get the police or FCC involved.

And for future reference, if someone is playing their music loud at midnight, they are probably having loud sex.
