Didn't notice any difference in sound. Mine are so old they rattle a bit anyway.

Excellent!! If it works out you might have started a new trend. Don't buy new, bigger filters, just bigger impellers. Keep us posted on your results!!

Yes unless you need more biological space and maybe a lower flow then just go backwards...run an ac 70 with a ac20 impeller for maybe 5 or 10 gallons

Okay, this has my interest. I have recently used a AC 30 as a hob refugium, in the hopes that I can get some pods to grow in there with the LR and chaeto. But I think it has too much flow for the pods to do well. Maybe I can put an AC 10 or 20 impeller in the 30 and slow it down some? Anyone think that will actually work?

Yes that will work. Just Google "ac filter mods" you will find tons of results of people doing that. I just wondered if it would work the other way around. So far the 110 impeller in the 70 worked....but I gotta wait till my order gets here to be able to tell about the smaller models
