How could I sound proof my room? Particularly against the "bass" end of the spectrum? I know you can use foam panels that are cheap enough but would they also help absorb the bass too? I'm getting tired of my parents yelling at me whenever I play music. I don't nessesarily play it loud, but with my subwoofer on, it goes low enough to rattle through the whole house even at low levels. I'd like to make this a competition, the best idea I will pick out and do to my room, I may even think of a prize.

Hmm, too bad you can't levitate it, which would eliminate the vibrations from the box itself. The only other thing I can think of that would work for something really heavily bass would be Maxwell Smart's Cone of Silence :-) Set the box in one cone and yourself in the other.....

Oh dear....
Well, when you think about it, imagine trying to soften the blows of a hammer on the floor....and you kind of get the idea of what you are up against.
. Great analogy and really goes the the crux of the problem.
Thanks...I guess you can tell I love to make analogies ;-)

Do you like anagrams?
Anagrams seem to be a challenge to me for some reason. I am good at relating ideas to words to other ideas, but am not as good with words from words (this doesn't mean I don't like them, but they are more challenging :-) Analogies come to me as easy as falling off a log LOL

Personally my forte are numbers.
Oh I love to freak my wife out at the clothing store when she asks me what 30% off is on the price of a $49.99 jacket or whatever. It really gets her when I am not more then a penny off LOL. I just wish I'd paid more attention in high school to Algebra (somehow, I never fully got quadratic equations) as I could use a course in Calculus to move me into the next level of what I would like to study and learn. *sigh*
