Can I make my Cine-7 more silent?

    I'm thinking of putting some soundabsorbent material behind my Cine-7. Just like a wall behind it to minimize the noice from it. If I put the material about 10 cm from the back of the projector and about as far down as the projector itself, would it be any danger to the projector?

    Any other suggestions how to make it more silent (except turning it off...)

    oops! Sorry...

    It's mounted in the ceiling. Nothing around it except its own casing.

    10cms clearance sounds fine. if its just a kinda of PJ mud-flap (for want of a better analogy), then heat build up shouldnt be a problem. its only when you start to actually enclose the thing that you have to consider intakes, exhausts and extra fans to move warm air.
    provided the unit's air flow isnt obstructed, and it can take in cool air without recycling its exhausted warm air, it ought to be fine.

    Fans in the Cine 7 went through many changes, some had two at the back, some two at the front. I've even seen one with 4 fans (trying to make it like a sony perhaps)
    The air flow also changed on some models from front to back.
    If yours is the suck air from the front to blow it out the back type and you restrick that air flow by putting something in the way then it may get louder to compensate. but I agree 10cm is a good distance to start.
