I learned something about generators when I put a muffler on one of mine.

Yeah, an advanced muffler quiets things down some, but most of the noise comes from the crankcase etc.

I am sure that is why most advanced and expensive inverter generators come housed in a sound deadening plastic case.


Gradiens super tenui glacie.

Yes, and we need to look some way to insulate the generator itself then...

Best way to "quiet" the generator is to not use it! The engine alternator charges the batteries at far higher current than the generator+charger do. It is also far quieter.

I wasn't aware of that. Thanks
