|TL;DR: Loud neighbor?

I'm glad I'm one of the fortunate people who still has power after Hurricane Ike hitting. HOWEVER, I almost wish the power went out so my farking neighbor couldn't play his TV so loud.|
This is the fifth (yes, the fifth) time I have gone down to ask him to turn it down in the last couple months. I can hear it above my TV. His arguments are that he paid $3,000 for his TV sound system and since it's only lunchtime, he doesn't have to be quiet (noise ordinance is 10pm to 7am). He asked if I'm going to come complain to him every time his TV is too loud (uh, obviously). I've gone to the apartment office once about this, but with the hurricane, they're closed, so I'll have to wait until they open in a few days to say anything to them again.
So TQC, do I have any other options? I mean, after having gone to him five times to complain, once to the office (soon to be twice), what else can I do? My lease isn't up until the end of January, so I have a few more months of having to deal with this ass-hat. Is that my only option? I dread coming home after work because I don't want to have to deal with his loud TV. I deal with loud students all day. I just want some peace and quiet while I grade and whatnot. :( I try to be as courteous to my neighbors as possible. I don't even get quiet on the weekends. What would you do?
My dad said I should get an air horn and blare it at him the next time I have to go down there.
