    That is a good video, I saw it before.
    I would recommend always spending a bit more and getting a quiet fan made from plastic.
    You get ridiculously silent ones for not much more than the standard jobbies.

    For 4" and 6" Vivosun type plastic fan housings, I took a 12x12x13" cardboard box (for 4" fan) and cut two U shaped cutouts so the box would fit over the unit's 2 ducting connector openings. I then went to a carpet store and they had a stack of carpet samples that are discontinued. I got 5 of them for free. I then bought double backed tape from HD and cut fit the carpeting and used the double sided tape to afix the carpet to the inside of the box. It worked great. I wish I had a workshop to make one out of plywood. It cut the sound by a third to a half. Total cost $5.50 (for the double sided tape).

    Ya, except all the Google searches for it were all from the UK. It also needs to be wired in.

    For stealth grows and making the ducting more quiet, the only insulated ducting I could find is for temp insulation rather than noise insulation. It lessened the noise coming from the fan housing, but not much. It's better than the plain aluminum ducting which just carries the duct fan motor noise thruout its length. Is there even any insulated ducting that's made from more than just fiberglass? Fiberglass insulated ducting is better than plain aluminum ducting, but not great at sound absorbtion, never was meant to be.
