    I get the idea that Mr. Smoking J is not a quiet and relaxed kind of guy. Heck he even modifyed the muffler on his big chain saw. That fan probably sounds like a lil jet but sombody wanted to move some air and he has got it going on.

    It be wise to be careful what you ask for around some people. :)

    It IS probably pretty loud, but at 200 watts for 1000 CFM, it's pretty efficient. Maybe put it on a speed control and dial it back a bit?
