View Full Version : fan noise

got my vortex 6in here
and i am very happy with it
however it is to loud for me to use
would a Electronic Speed Control reduce the noise it makes
as i could slow it down
i am cooling a 600w {also purchased here}
i need it to be very very quiet yet
cool the light in a small space

make sure you are using insulated ducting and you can also wrap your fan in some form of insulation or another. even mounting it within a sound deadend box. um thats about all i can think of for noise besides maybe an inline duct muffler within your system.

yeah that should work for you. carpet padding is a good thing to wrap it in I think. you also can use a dimmer because a 4" would prob be sufficient to cool that light.

Have you tried this? The Speedster Fan Speed Control


and also would you have any info on the maintenance? The oiling aspect of the motor?
