    Has anyone used these types of fans? I cant find any reviews online and I don't want to pay the extra money if they really aren't that quiet and don't have the airflow needed.

    BTW if I do get one I will be getting the TD350 - 125mm / 380 m3/hr ( £134.95 ) ( 2.8kgs)

    Any help would be much appreciated

    I just setup a grow tent with a TD-200. Its quiet, but not nearly as quiet as I was hoping for. It is still audible to about 5-6ft outside the door of the spare bedroom my tent is in. When my central A/C system kicks in though, I can hardly hear the fan over the sound of the home's A/C anymore. I am having some ventilation issues with a 1000w hps also. You can find my post a few down from this one, but I'm getting temps of about 90-95F.

    I dont see the TD-200 listed as a quiet fan. How much did you pay for it?
    Also can you put a muffler on the fan?
    Or is it a better buy if I buy a regular 4" 200 CFM fan and put a muffler on it?

    I've got a TD 350/125 in my bedroom , and Im sleeping next to it.
    Makes less noise than a Thermaltake computer fan.
    Never thought of buying a muffler. And Im not deaf.

    Zoltan-Where did you buy your TD 350/125 from? and is it a 4"inline fan? I cant find any good sites with spec's.

    highasfuck- Does the insulated duct actually work? or am i better off buying a muffler?

    Zoltan-
    I checked ebay and I can only find TD inline fans that aren't the silent type, only regular. Did you get yours off ebay?

    Oh and do you think you can send me a link to your fan? I checked and I cant fins a TD350 silent model, but I can find a TD-100XS. Is that what you have?

    Oh okay thanks a lot. BTW is your 350 fan the silent brand? or just regular? I'm just afraid that if I get the TD-100XS with the 4" connector it wont be strong enough to go from outside<reflector<outside<fan. The highest CFM with 4" is only around 140CFM...



    + rep btw :)

    I'd go with the bigger cfm instead of buying twice. My 350 is a silent one.
    (filter>cooltube>fan>exhaust)

    If You'll be using it only for cooling Your hood, i guess TD 100 can do the job.


    Thanks for the rep :)

    I already have a 6" 440 CFM fan going just to a carbon filter so I am already buying twice haha.
    Im confused, you said go with bigger CFM first and then said just to get the TD100XS?

    http://www.horticulturesource.com/s...ply-sun-system-super-sun-tempered-glass-p627/ thats the reflector I have. Not the best I know but I got that with a 600 watt HPS/MH set for only 90 bucks ^^

    You have experience with the TD silent series, so how strong of a fan do you think I should get?

    All my fans in are S&P inline fans and are very quiet with insulated flex duct. My 4x8 secret jardin has a td-100x for intake an td-200 exhaust on the carbon filter and another td-200 cooling two blockbuster hoods both with 1000 watt quantum digital ballast.

    Another is a 4x4 jardin tent has td-100 for intake fan.Then a insulated flex line with reducer feeding from the 4x8 hoods cooling a growzilla hood with two 600 quantum digital ballasts and a td-150 pulling from the growzilla outside the tent. It has another td-150 hooked to a carbon filter.in the tent.

    Another is a 5x5 jardin tent with Three sets of 6 bulb quantum badboy t5's on wire rack shelving and a ez-clone. One td-100 intake and a td-150 exhausted hooked to carbon filter.

    The last tent is a secret jardin 3x3 running 8 bulb 2ft t5's with td-100 intake and td-100x exhaust on a carbon filter.

    All of these tents are in the same room and very quiet. If the TV's on in the next room you can barley hear the fans and that's with the door to the room is open. If the door is closed you can[t hear hardly anything if your standing in front of the closed door. I have greenhouse controllers also on all tents and you can hear the switches barely click when co2 and other settings change every few minutes. My fridge in the kitchen makes more noise than that hole room so if done right they are very quiet and all have low and high speed with extra fan speed controllers hooked to them. If you can't hear,see or smell it then nobody will ever no it's anything but a room with the door closed. It's well worth the extra cost to do it right for your safety and privacy.

    Tony's post is very informative.

    And I was trying to say, if You're ONLY going to use it for the hood td100 is okay.
    With the td350 , You can cool Your hood + attach Your CF . Im pretty sure it wont dissapoint You.
    Less power consumption + less noise.

    Tony that sounds like a pretty epic setup haha. Are all the fans TD silent? or just regular with insulated ducting?

    I would buy the 350 but like I said I already have a 6" 440CFM fan that I just bought so there's no point to buy the 350 if I already have a 440CFM fan haha
