I see online that some make what is called a quiet/baffle/muffler box to get the noise of their contractor special down to reasonable levels. The question of reasonableness is not whether the noise is objectionable to you but rather to others.

The only thing I could come up with on the Champion 46539 is DBA was 68 at 23ft.
I have exhausted my search for the 46539 at 50ft. The one other thing that I found was the noise level is considered average compared to inverters. What does that mean, if anything.
Any ideas ?????

These people are PROUD of their product. They make the price of a Honda look like a K-mart blue light special! At that price they show me they want to keep it far more than they want me to buy it.

Not cheap. I have one on a Subaru genny that plugs into my house. When the weather is poor and I need my well pump to run - it is worth it.

YMMV.

Using the calculator found here...

Sound level distance damping decibel dB damping calculation calculator change distance versus sound level apps reduction drop dissipation SPL sound transmission loss free field loss sound and distance - decrease drop fall sound over distance versus d


At a distance of 50 feet, it is converted to 61.26 dBA - close. You can manipulate the noise based on how the exhaust is pointed. If your camping neighbor is set up within a 50 ft radius, then a simple DIY quiet box is the neighborly thing to do.

68db is average for an inverter? If I read that right, that is patently wrong. The Honda EU2000i runs 59 dB(A) @ rated load, 53dB(A) @ 1/4 load. The EU3000i runs 58 dB(A) @ rated load, 49 dB(A) @ 1/4 load !!! Those are night and day different thant 68db.

You pay for Honda, but if you want quiet it costs. Yamaha inverters are a smidge louder.

Anything that is not yours you will probably find annoying in a short time if the dB level exceeds 62 @ 23 ft.
