'you gotta talk to the dj' was what i was told. they turned it down bit and then turned it BACK UP during my class.
frequently they had less than 5 people lingering around the camp. most likely just their own crew.
and they didn't speak to their neighbors or openly engage with anyone not a part of their scene all week.
**yeah this shit bothers me... but its about being a good fucking neighbor moreso than enforcing rules and regulations.**
Look at and listen to me. I am KOOL and powerful 'cause I can play/distort pre- recorded music, and you have to listen to/can't avoid me! "
DeafGuy wrote: something I should have mentioned was that BEFORE WHINING TO BRR we did go to the primary offending camp and discuss the situation with their "leader" and "DJ". We explained that since they were not in the designated "ear blowing" areas they had to abide by the 300 watt rule (despite packing in 10 times that capability). They were very, very polite (which frankly suprised me) but said "dude, blame the BM placement....we should've been out by the loud camps and they put us here..." They flatly refused to turn their knobs one bit.
DeafGuy wrote:While it appears the "rules" were not really enforced, they are pretty clear regarding how much power you can run if you are not in a designated loud area. I assume you were running much more than 300 watts and were not in such an area?

In a nutshell, it doesn't matter how much time, money and effort you put into your sound camp. If it's not in the "loud" zone and it's over 300 watts, you have to turn it down..........
