Maybe you should try what I did at work. I was
blasted day in and day out by the school
bell going off at the end of periods
that was located _inside the class a few
feet behind me (never measured the
sound but it was easily 100 dBA or more). On top
of that I had to put up with the speaker
firing at me with announcements
throughout the day.
Solution: one day after school when most had left
the building, I climbed up on a desk,
disconnected the bell and put up
muffling in front of the speaker but behind the metal grill. I
should have done it a year earlier!
