I cut down on media and used the activated carbon, the sponge, and instead of using the bio max I used the ceramic material from my canister filter. It is a lot more quiet now but I've seen better with other filters.
Glad you got it under control. If you should decide you want first class filtering should your canister ever "die," I would strongly suggest a Fluval C series.
