Quiet filter for 37 gal fresh water

I had to move my tank downstairs where my tv is. The filters I have now are pretty loud. I have a top fin 40 and top fin 60 on it. I would like to get another one that isn't loud at all. On my other tank I have an ac 110 that is really quiet until water evaporates and little. Any suggestions on what I could put on this 37 gallon tank to make it quiet?

Have you looked into the Fluval C4?

I have one and once it broke in its completely silent! Here's my YouTube video about it. Keep in mind this is when I just got it and it was making noise. I'm gonna do an updated video to show the difference.

Great Ill look into that. Would you recommend that over the AC counterparts? and would that be enough filtration for my 37 gal?

Do you think the C4 would be sufficient for my tank? Right now I have two filters. The top fin 40 and 60.
