Stricter controls on subwoofers urged

July 25th, 2007 · No Comments

They’re vital to a great cinema sound, but if they’re not used responsibility, subwoofers can bring nothing but grief. So much so that in Australia, the authorities want stricter controls over their use.
Syndey’s Lord Mayor Clover Moore says that the use of subwoofers in apartments has led to health concerns for suffering residents. The Lord Mayor is demanding a review on the Noise Control Regulations administered by the Department of Climate Change and Environment. She argues that common noise measurement techniques cannot be applied to deep bass, a charge denied by the department in question. Says Moore: “One of my constituents tells me that the low frequency noise caused vibrations and sensations within her body beyond the noise levels themselves, and that she suffered a series of associated health concerns including heart palpitations, nausea and vomiting, and inflammation of skin and other organs.”
