    Sorry. Does anybody think lining the space between the return grille and filter/flan with some sort of sound absorbing duct liner might work?'

    If I put something in front of the grille (2 inches) it cuts down the noise. Is this going to be a problem for the unit? It is still pulling in what seems like plenty of air.
