Someone is banging on my door ... wait no people are banging in their bed.

This weekend I woke up to, what I thought, was someone banging on my apartment door at 4AM. After getting up I realized it was my neighbors going at it. They must have moved their headboard against our shared wall. Any ideas on how to discretely ask them to move their bed, or is that out of bounds?

I've been living next to my neighbors for 9 months. We're on cordial terms, we're both young. I haven't interacted with them besides a hello in the hallway and some small talk. I've had my share of neighbors having sex noises, but I think they've moved their bed, literally, against the wall. It sounds like someone is hammering.
I've also had some crazy neighbors, so I'm sensitive to crazy neighbor notes and passive aggressiveness. I'd simply like to tactfully convey, "Hey did you move your bed right against the wall? Because you scared the hell out of me thinking someone was banging on my door."
We're not talking about all night marathons, but even 2 minutes of banging is enough to wake me up and keep me up.
