I have been searching for some good info on soundproof enclosures and noise reduction to run these noisy antminers in the house. I put together a video of my quick creation on YouTube. It is my first video.

S9 specific  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VbAjh5q1Tzw&t
 

If you have any other soundproofing ideas let me know. I have a couple s9s that need sustainable sound proofing.

Just a note:  This design is a crude proof of concept to show that the miner does not heat up the box and reduces noise by around 30 dB. The key was some box around the minerwith the intake and exit air going through insulated ducking. It worked like a muffler or gun silencer. The insulated ducting is rated to very high heat as well.

So far so good.

I made another video today with the antminer S9 hooked up

Very cool!  Do you have forced air through the ducting?

I would just have them hosted by Giga Watt or another reputable hosting company, cheaper electric and NO noise. I have the Bitmain R4 for home mining and heat in the winter and it's quit. I hope they sell more or an updated version this winter, even though I'm not a fan of the company it's the best miner for mining at home.

WOW!!!
20 becibel less it's really a good improvement...
if you want you can use this panels to cover the box interiors

i think you can reduce other 7/8 decibel.
Compliments for the job

This enclosure has been running great for around a month and a half with zero issues.

Internal temps are around 24 degrees Celsius which is similar to ambient temp outside the box.
Boards are all stable

I found someone who is about the mass produce this soundproofing enclosure for Antminers.  Same concept but used different materials and looks quite nice.

There are 4 videos showing different stages of development and results.

https://youtu.be/lr0SHlEu_oE - showing beginning construction

https://youtu.be/EHvUdZdGefA  - showing last stage of construction

https://youtu.be/_FX-Pk2DrfM   - shorter video of installation of final product in residential room

https://youtu.be/XvLmInh4tNY  - showing noise reduction results with meter

I believe he is from France and is currently looking into sourcing materials for mass production and sale.

Well done!  Keep us posted on any mass production!
