Wave file to deter obnoxious dog

I have an obnoxious dog next door whose master is equally obnoxious.   His bark is loud, constant and resembles at times a high-pitched scream...nails on the chalkboard.  Called police and animal control...neighbor refuses to get a device (e.g. collar).

I don't feel I should pay $100 or so for a device that may or may not work.

My idea is that I have a high quality stereo system.  There ought to be some way to download or generate a wave or mp3 file that I can burn to cd and play loudly any time the dog barks.   I've heard the range should be between 20-60 khz, but that there are other variables.    I CAN point the speaker right at the dog, who is about 20 yards away.

I'm posting the question here in hopes that there is an easy solution via community downloads, etc.  There HAS to be something out there.

Used something similar to this..

Worked very well.  Tacked it to a tree outside, and it shut dogs up as far as 50 feet.

A dog whistle could be a low tech solution,  or a gun.

Incedentially I dont think standard PC or stereo speakers would be capable of transmitting the audio at the correct frequency, so my original comment still stands.

Thank you for the answers... I'm afraid you may be right about computer speakers not being good for this....
