yeah Emp 400 is pretty quiet. Canister would be your best bet, but hang on back are good if you keep the water level high. Check out your LFS, they should have some Emps on the back of their tanks...

Every emp400 I have ever had is noisy....if not the impeller or vibration, it is the damn trickling. for a power filter go with an ac500...they are very quiet. But if I had a tank in my bed room I would have nothing but a eheim canister on it. I have 5 and they are totally silent!

thats because the AC doesnt have a biowheel which interupts flow and causes slashing noise

i just got a ac500 for my 55 gallon that i'm starting up and it does have a little rattle in the impeller. When i take the intake tube out it still rattles. Kinda makes me angry since it's brand new. Think this is just my filter or is it like this for anyone else?

I would take it back ASAP. I just bought an ac500 last week and it is perfectly silent (other than water spewing out of it back into the tank)
