I guess I misunderstood about how far away this unit must be from the theater to be quiet. It's not the airflow itself, though that is loud through rigid duct, but the housing has a loud sound to it as air hits off of it. It probably should be on another floor. Being an attic fan, that makes sense. I have an 8X16 laundry room behind my basement theater. I thought running some duct from the room to this fan in the laundry room would be quiet. This thing sounds like a tornado!


Should I return it or will the fan itself quiet down once I connect it to some flexible insulated duct? Once I use flexible duct, it will probably have to run full blast to have adequate pulling power so a rheostat wouldn't help?
