Yes. I will have to agree. The hmmmmmmm sound is a little bothersome when it is quiet (like never.. ha, ha) in the house
I have a Penguin HOB
Biowheel filter because I didn't want the pumps (and it is a great filter!!
)but this bubble thing was soooooooooooo cool when i saw it, I just had to have it. I was running the little air pump for ht ecorner filter and it was actually very quiet. I just didn't relize the bigger you went... the noiser it was too!!! Duh!?!?! I guess i should have figured that one
Well, I just traded the Elite 802 for the smaller version, an 801 single. I had the guy at the LFS
plug it in first to see how loud it was. It was considerable quieter. Wow! What a difference going from the 2 output to the single!
Now, let's see how quiet it is once I get it home and hook it up. I hope it will be powerfull enough to run the corner filter and the flexable bubble bar. The guy said it would, but he might just want the sell... if ya' know what i mean.
