I’m happy to have thought long enough about sound and noise when converting a small garage into a shop. I built a small lean to 14’ X 9’-ish to hold my air compressor and cyclone dust collector. I got everything installed and it’s working great except I still need to build a return. Not a big deal except the area is so small I really didn’t want to give up the wall space. After lots of of reading and looking I decided on this. Its a 12” X 12” return. For more detail on it check out my blog post. Blog

I’ve been using it for a few days and it’s working good. I think a larger whole would have been nice but for now I’m going to stick with this and see.

So far it’s doing a great job but I’d say the bigger the hole the better the flow.
