Too much noise in sump

There is too much noise coming from water falling into the sump from the tank. Is this normal? I would like as quieter as possible. I have little less than half the sump filled with water as recommended by the lfs. Will increasing the water level in the sump reduce the noise?

place the input line beneath the water level and put a 45 pvc fitting on it.

The sack is right now lightly touching the top of the water. Can I sink the sack right inside the water?
