the noises will come from the drains and the pumps. i have a mag12 and it is really noisy. i will be trading it out for a Quiet One real soon. how are you getting the water from the tank to the sump? i have heard that standpipes work great for quieting down overflows.

sounds good so far. the mag12's would be my only concern for quietness now. they do get quieter with some back pressure. mine is real chatty, even after replacing the impeller.

keep the water returns far enough below the waters surface to allow good water movement on the surface yet not high enough to cause splashing(noise).
