    Aspie is it possible for you to hang something like a curtain pole around six inches away from the said wall and just hang some really heavy curtain's or a roll of carpet under lay up on it . The noise will be greatly reduced by the cavity inbetween the curtain and the wall . If this is not possible you would best hanging it straight against the wall . The foam underlay would absorb some sound like that . But best if you can create a cavity . The old fashioned way of sound proofing a wall with egg boxes actually works but isn't brilliant but it's the shape of the boxes and not the material that makes them good at absorbing sound . A few old duvets hung on the wall ?

    Acoustic is pricey though i cant afford that shit either 40$ covers 48" sq per batt ... what you can do to stop fan vibrations , is use rubber washers if bolted , or bungee straps if suspended . nothing carries sound like cheap hard plastic and metal tubing , . it actaully amplifies it.
    There are times when I don't even have it in the hand for it to be taken away. My earnings have dived over the last 2-3 years. That's why I had to start growing my own, as I didn't have enough to buy any. Each year, it gets worse.

    I have the fan inside a large cardboard box which is filled with foam and suchlike. Underneath that I have approximately 10" of foam, and some between the box and the wall. There's no vibrations, but you can hear the whooshing sound when the fan is turned up high. Not so bad during the day, but at night you can hear a flea fart.

    The underlay in this room is shit. I've seen sheets of paper that are thicker. It was the only room that the wife didn't have done when we moved in. I've been round all the carpet shops around here for any off-cuts, and they all said they didn't have any. So, the tent itself is on flattened boxes that I got from the hydro shop. That's proved successful from hearing the tent from downstairs.

    The two things that make any noise is the LED light - which is already hanging, and the Rhino fan (which uses acoustic ducting and padded well) It's the whooshing in the fan.

    I have managed to find the camera and I've taken some pics. I'll have to shut down for a while and use the craptop.

    Back later chaps.

    When you walk into the room, this what you'll see...


    The alcove on the right holds a CFL with a seedling.
    The black on the left is the tent. The gap between them both is the width of a Mars II 400w box.

    This is inside the tent (to squash anyone who has vibes)


    This is one side of the boxed Rhino on top of the wardrobe.This is the side where the tent is.


    This is the other side...


    Please don't ask for more photos as I've put it all away, and don't fancy doing that all over again.

    Thanks, mate, but don't worry if you can't. I cannot even do a Windows update, even though it's a legal version of it.
    It never allowed me to just plug the lead in and download. The software had to be installed first.

    Right.... the camera accepts a SD memory card (I assume that you don't have one?) The card can be taken from the camera & inserted into a card reader (either built into the PC or a stand alone one attached by USB)... my guess would be that you don't have one of them either

    Let's get Christmas out of the way & then PM me a reminder as I may have what you need hanging about & if I have then you can have it for free as both items are things that I no longer need....

    Hi mate,
    It's already (I think) a 6 inch - maybe 5 inch ducting, and it is a small tent (60x60) It near damn well killed me putting the thing together. Due to the lack of room in here, I had to make it downstairs with the cats out of the way.

    Fibreglass and shit had to be cleaned up before I could take it upstairs, which wasn't easy in my condition. I nearly passed out twice putting the box on to the wardrobe and into the tent. I'll do anything not to have to mess about with it again.

    I did lift the left side of the ducting where the air is expelled, and it appeared to make it quieter. I will redo that test in the early hours when the lights are out, and things are more quiet.

    If it is quieter, then I am going to figure out a way to keep it there. I am not allowed to drill into the ceiling or the walls, so it''ll have to be propped up from underneath somehow.

    Hi mate,
    Correct, I don't have one, and correct again, I don't have one of those either.

    That's jolly decent of you mate. A good egg you are. I'll have to take a look at the back of the PC sometime to see if there's a spare USB port. I have a feeling there isn't.

    Take care

    Update: There doesn't seem to be a noticeable difference in the noise from the fan, at least the wife doesn't think so.

    I had a thought. How much ducting do I need from the end of the fan? I presently have around 4 metres that runs under the bed. If I cut most of it off, there won't be so much weight pulling it down.

    I have a stocking at the end of it, so catch any dust and shit.

    Thank you

    Sorry for delay Aspie , sometimes a pin hole/thin cracks in a duct can make a whistling noise check for that . GEt a propane torch and lighter and use that place unlit propane torch near intake in duct open full pin , then take lighter and check for the leak . No no just kidding dont use a torch LMFAO PMSL


    Sometimes i need to punch holes in ducts to verify peoples furnaces and ventilation to check drafts and temperatures , and sometimes i foget to tape it up and people complain theres a whistle afterwards , Blocked intake can do it also , clean that sock off , and pass a vacuum lightly over your filter ..... lets eliminate one thing at a time .

    Also , short radius bends can make noises also . i like to make bends and turns 4x pipe radius when possible .

    Hi mate,

    No worries about the delay. We're all busy at times.

    The ducting is good, hole wise. What I don't think is helping is the kink as it comes out from the fan. There's approximately 4 metres of acoustic ducting running from the fan to under my bed. If I cut off 4 metres off it, it will make it lighter and shouldn't bend as much. I haven't cut it off yet, as I was waiting to hear what others have to say about it.

    Thank you

    Ok , im more of a visual guy aspie , need pics hahaha , hard to troubleshoot with words on a screen lol, just do your best to have nice bends and turns , maybe you fan is too powerful for the size of tent , How many CFM is it rated for , and what are the dimensions of your tent in feet ?

    Hi mate,

    I'm a visual guy myself. I've already posted photos and won't be taking more. It did my back in taking the last lot, as well as a lot of faffing around getting them online.

    I am referring to the ducting as seen in the last photo that i posted (scroll up to see)

    The ducting is coming out from the box/fan and drops shortly afterwards. It is approximately 4 metres in length. If I cut off most of it, there will be less weight to pull it down.

    It's a 5" Rhino Pro
    I've no idea what CFM is or what the fan is rated at.
    The tent in cm is 60x60x140
    1.9685 feet by 1.9685 feet by 4.59318 feet

    Thank you
