Mine is loud too, and more so because it is on a walkway between the
house and poolhouse, so it echoes between the walls. I have it
positioned so that the muffler points towards the woods behind my house,
so that it doesn't bother the neighbors as much, but when my generator
is running, so are the neighbor's generators.
I've thought of removing that box muffler and replacing it with a pipe
and auto muffler pointing straight up. Maybe make a removable foam
insulation board surround (3 sides), to keep the motor and generator
noise down.

I've thought of putting generator in a shed, with fiberglass
insulation and a ceiling bathroom type fan. Run the exhaust
outside. Eaves vents for fresh air coming in.

Or buy a quieter generator, next time.

 They may list the dB rating in the literature. They may even
accurtely report it. Wouldn't that be a surprise!

I thought about that. If mine didn't sound like the hinges
on the gates of
Hell, I'd be able to hear all my neighbor's generators.

   If you are reasonably handy, find yourself a good deal on an old Onan
generator like they use in motor homes.  They run at half the speed of
portable generators and are much easier to make quiet.  Further, most of
them you find still have thousands of hours of reliable operation left in
them.
