I have 6" non-insulated ducting to exhaust the heat and I'm surprised at the noise reduction.  That alone makes a 100% fan quieter than a 65% fan without it. Have you tried a shorter length, like say 10" over the exhaust fan only? I am wondering if that would be enough to make a noticeable difference.

I tell you what I have more then 16 ft left I will cut some short ones.

Interesting.  It may be worth it to invest in some ducting just to lower the noise and non-insulated stuff is way cheaper than the insulated.

the wall between the garage doors is a support beam.   No can do

Well, actually it's a column, but that's the engineer in me speaking through my OCD.

I'm not understanding the physics as to why a 6" long tube on the end makes it any quieter.  Do you have dB meter readings to back this up?

I boosted fans to 70% and hash to freq  581.25

now I have a 'good' batch 1  and a 575 marked batch 2

but the 581 numbers  with both combined below are decent

The 6" was diameter.  Sorry.  It is actually multiple feet long and leads outside, so that is where a majority of the noise is routed.  I was just curious if a shorter 7" diameter insulated duct over the exhaust fan would also have a good noise reducing effect.  I thought it might.

the pitch  changes with more length and since the air travels further it also exits that tube at a slower speed.

my meter readings on non insulated tubes were about 1db less but a bit pitch difference.


 I used 7 inch concrete forms (sonotubes)
I used 7 inch metal duct work.

7 inch tubes fit right over the fan the 7 inch product from homedepot is very good


here is  a cheap home depot product - but it is six inches it will not fit right

big price difference

this 8 inch will fit and is a good price.  it is in many stores and may the  best choice along with duct tape.

It would be easier to just buy the right size ductboard and then use egg crates padding.

You can find simple ductboard locally and they make it in squares, which is easier to work with if needed.

I just force vent the exhaust into the garage and have a window mounted attic fan that forces air into the room next to the detached garage. I live in Texas, so we can't seal things up otherwise we wind up with mold.

saw this old youtube video on "PC Fan Muffler"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-5vvtt_vwgo

My S7s will be outdoors so all I need to keep the noise down.

Will this fan muffler work ? It certainly use all the concepts discussed in this thread but its look so simple without ducting.

I would be worried about restricting the airflow with something like that.

Definitely WAY too restrictive... There's nothing wrong with the principle behind what they're doing, it's simple: eliminate direct paths for the soundwaves, and replace highly reflective (audible-wise) surfaces with non-reflective ones (ie; foam).  I have a huge rack mount case that does much the same thing, but you need to make sure the air channel is at least the same size as the fan, and if you're introducing turns and obstructions then you need more space than that.

won't work it will cut down the fan speed and air flow way too much.

the ducts I use work they are 7 inch and fit the fans easy.
