I'm assuming you're watching TV with the soundbar when the neighbors complain. I'm curious because if that's the case, I don't see you moving the speakers away from the TV. What I mean is, watching someone's lips move on TV and having the sound come from any location other than the center is disconcerting. Your brain sees a picture and expects the sound to match that location. I would rather watch TV at a reduced volume for 7 months than put up with mis-matched audio and video locations. Maybe get some headphones. My .02.
