    rebuild the complex you are living in :rofl:

    sound they will hear will be carried by the structure of your building

    you need to be able to isolate the surface of your room from any other surface, also known as a floating room

    Bass noises are especially difficult to isolate. There are things you could do to help with voices and higher frequencies, but in your situation the only thing you can do really is turn the bass down and possibly get some bass traps.

    Put your sub on a block of open-cell foam, and put squares of open-cell foam on your wall to dissipate the energy.

    Oh, and turn the bass down.
