Fred, I found a place on the ceiling of my shop to place the fan so it isn’t too much in the way. This meant the box is as small as possible so the fan outlet extends 1/4” through the side of the box. But, your comment leads me to wonder if I could put some kind of diffuser on the outlet to spread out the flow so it wouldn’t be as windy. That probably wouldn’t cut the noise but it would be a start. Thanks.

DIYaholic, I am using a direct drive unit as it is smaller than a belt drive fan so there are no pulleys to change. As I mentioned to Fred, I wanted the smallest box possible.

Thanks for the comments.
