Re: Generator Cover
exhaust is the majority of the noise. i have seen people make stacks for generators which greatly reduces the noise.
run a pipe about 10 foot in the air, i would make the pipe at least 1" bigger in diameter than exhaust, run flex pipe from engine to stack.
saw people do this at a nascar race about 10 years ago and was suprised at how quite that made generators in the campground.
if you put generator in a encloser to quite the noise, make sure you leave some sort of venting system to let air flow through, both for cooling and to let fresh air into engine. i would make venting on each end for flow through. dont want to burn generator up.
Your never to old to learn something stupid
