EBM/Pabst blowers are significantly quieter than Dayton. They make many
sizes. Look them up on Google. I have a G2E085-AA05 EBM blower that will
cool a pair of 3CX800's. The blower generates 56 CFM @ 0 back pressure.
The complete specs for this fan is on the EBM website. I used the twin to
this blower to cool a pair of 8874's in a Dentron MLA 2500 conversion and it
was overkill. $50 plus $10 Priority shipping.
Also have a EBM/Pabst G2E120-AR54 blower that generates 152CFM@ 0 back
pressure. I am using the twin to this blower to cool a pair of 4CX1500B's.
It's a little louder than the 085 but blows 3x the air. $80 plus $10
shipping. BTW, both of these blowers are 115vac and have the start caps.
Thanks for reading,
