Get a Donaldson air filter pack used on tractors, backhoes, etc. Designed to silence, and also has a good air filter. Remote mount near engine and plumb engine to filter.

Airseps have little silencing.

That was a great tip. It looks like Donaldson actually manufactures the filters for many others. I found a couple of likely candidates in their catalogs and I will contact their engineering department tomorrow. I think a solution is at hand!

Thanks!

there are lots of complicated factors in dealing with noise, but one simple thing to keep in mind which helps you to find a solution to most of it relatively simply...noise travels in a straight line
