Are you talking about the drain line? That should not be closed at all. Is the noise you hear coming from the overflow? If you have a regular HOB overflow, here's a simple solution to keep it quiet.

WOW, an instant Durso. I like that. I just tried your mod on my built in overflow and it works there too. That's amazing! Did you seal the airline going into the cup?

That does work pretty nice, plus you can't beat the cost. I don't have the airline sealed at the top of the cup. I made the hole so it was a tight fit then put a few wraps of tape around it to keep it from pulling out. The airline doesn't have to be that long either, but that was the size of the piece I had laying around.
