Quiet a generator with an automotive muffler


okay I have a generator it’s a Briggs & Stratton generator and I want to see if I can make it quieter so first thing is I’m just actually gonna put on a cheap muffler and see if just an automotive style muffler make it quiet but I’m also going to take a decibel reading I picked up a decibel meter so I’m going to take a sound decibel meter reading of a known generator I have a also have a Yamaha F 1000 that’s rated at the manual says 63 decibels at 23 feet so we’re going to test that out first and see where that one falls in at so it’s essentially exactly what they say it is that you can see my speech my speech just talking to you jumps all the way up to 72 70 decibels here we have a Rockwell Brewster stratton same as Generac i believe i think Generac brought out Rockwell anyways traditional muffler just a basic Briggs & Stratton nothing fancy muffler so we’re gonna sell out she is got our I have her spaced out at 23 feet stir it up and put the put the automotive muffler on and see any sound drop now we have it with the muffler attached so show this just temporarily attached pipe since it’s not clammed on ya just get some aluminum foil just to seal up the gap and it’s just by script so 80 decibels pretty loud so guess the muffler was a fail 2 decibels really is really need to so much noise comes from the block like the engine block and out there that really needs to be insulated around the engine block but then you need to add you know lanes and block needs to be made to still be able to cool so you have to add cooling fans build shrouds around it with essentially insulation sound insulation which is also going to be heat insulation fan systems everything probably easier just to buy a generator that’s quite to begin with good luck
