Have you ever thought of not just calling the police, but actually petitioning the city council to post a noise ordinance for your neighborhood?
Calling the police is OK, but a noise ordinance, posted in your neighborhood, would go a little farther in helping the police as well.
What I mean is, if the police come out for a noise complaint, all they can do is ask them to turn the noise down, then leave. A noise ordinance would give them the ability to write a ticket and fine the offenders.

You are exactly right, sometimes you do have to take a stand and I say go for it. HOwever, I just wanted you to be prepared when they do the same thing - and normally, those types don't play by the rules.
I understand you being frustrated - I hate that as well. That kind of music makes my heart race - too many years during college, spent having others music crammed down my throat.

I can see Freckles point about not wanting to move. The house is his home and has been for a long time. He is within his right to expect people to behave with manners. However, it seems like his neighbors don't have manners, so what to do now.
Call the police. Confront them. Put up sound proof windows. Move Get used to it and ignore it.
On an aside note, the teenagers in my old neighborhood used to play the music like that on the corner. Then they would get together and cruise around in their little hood mobiles and play the BOOM BOOM BOOM. I think their cars finally rattled apart from all the vibrations.
In reality, the cops finally busted the big time drug dealer and the drug dealer after that and the drug dealer after that. The corner is much quieter now; although, I'm sure drug dealing goes on there. They have just learned to keep it quiet and inside.
It took a couple years to get to this point, but maybe Freck won't have to move. He'll just have to be persistent.
