Or just move along to a different thread if you aren't worried about noise
Mine is about as noisy as an idling laptop.
i like to set my grow box up so I can stand next to it while its running and you cant detect anything, no noise at all, plus i grow inside of furnature, so the grow area appears normal to the average joe
For that Tim, go right to the pros and check out a Whisperline.
Did you get this style? https://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-FV-20NLF1-WhisperLine-Line-6-Inch/dp/B000EDUIX2
Do you need to wire your own plug for this fan?
I have a 3x3 tent and 4" exhaust ain't cutting it so I need a quiet option with 6" so this 240 cfm is ideal.
That is the unit I use. It is fantastic. I do not recall all of its installation,
but I was able to get through it....that means that an idiot can do it. :0)
Mine came with an 8-6" adapter. 5 years or so now, zero issues, ever.
I will be using these from here out. ;0)
think this would be quiet enough for a tent upstairs? living room is right below, just don't wanna be too annoyed.
An S&P ? Yes, from all reports.
I know that my own professionally muffled fan is inaudible outside the door
let alone downstairs.
S&P struck me as top-shelf and I think that others here use them.
badass. 2nd question then, would the low setting on the td-200s (370 cfm) be too much for a 4x4x5 tent?
Others who own one will have to confirm, but I must believe "not at all".
Too much fresh air? Only if you struggle to maintain temps is that typically an issue.
Thank you Javadog
Any Time Bro!
Anybody got a solution for the air pumps noise and the stones inside the buckets vibrating
It takes mass to block the pump noise....I bought a 2X12 and
made a box 2" thick on all sides and used a square of Boogie Board
for the last side.
...slung the pump on a t-shirt "hammock" in the middle of the box.
This was just barely livable....but I have a sensitive wife. :0)
We used to wrap the stones with a few thick rubber bands.
I've got one of these, it's not cheap but the fan itself is very quite, at it's lowest speed setting it's nearly 100% silent, standing a few feet from the tent I hear only the 120mm fans on the cobs. However on high it's no where near silent but moves a ton of air. https://www.amazon.com/Hyper-Fan-Stealth-Germination-Equipment/dp/B00S27SRI0/
There's still a bit of air flow wooshing but every fan has that. If needed I toss a second old used filter on the end of the ducting.
I was intensely looking at these a while back, having major paranoia about noise, but I need at least 750cfm for room area without taking anything else into account. But the largest of these only shifts 600, and being mixed flow I think you can probably reduce that again. So would probably need 2, not sure how sound works but I imagine that would be twice the dB lol, and they're pretty pricey.
Anyone have one?
I use a Panasonic Whisperline and these fans are sufficiently quiet as
to be inaudible over the push-fan that I have in my office window.
I am sure that S&P are similarly quiet.
I Used To Run A 6 Inch S&P And It Was Very Quiet. I Switch To The Max Fan Pro To Reduce 6ft Of Ducting And 2 90 Degree Bend's. Yes Its A Tab Bit Louder But I'm Also Running On Low So Its An Even Trade Off.
