Yes. The noise-makers at times have also driven
me to the edge of madness. Fortunately, I live
within walking distance of the OU library, so I can
go there for escaping into a quiet place. Of course,
unless trends are reversed, when the noise-addicted
generation takes over administration of our libraries,
we can fully expect piped-in techno-garbage.
Have you asked any pet shop owners about high-
frequency noise gadgets that are supposed to be
used to train dogs not to bark? The frequencies
are so high that humans can't hear them. Maybe
there would be a way to rig an amplifier to broadcast
this in the dogs' direction whenever they launch
into a barking spell.
For this, you wouldn't be concerned about the
speakers' performance in the bass range.
