Vanguard powered generators are nice for the big wattage. Consider a Honda generator for the quiet one. I used a Honda Generator in the Police Interceptor BBQ trailer to power the stereo and all other electronics and it’s whisper quiet…
That’s what I was thinking as well, but either way, it looks like I’ll have to build a sound insulation box to house the compressor and the (bigger) generator, because they will never be quiet enough for my needs normally.
I have a huge craftsman air compressor im willing to sell. I think its a 50g i’ll have to check for you. Its loud as fuck though, I dunno if thats gonna be an issue for you (but ive never heard a quiet one)
As mentioned above Honda makes small power generators so quiet you can barely hear them so that will do just fine for lighting. Other stuff will need a sound deadened chamber constructed. However two stage oiled generators are relatively quiet to begin with, and silenced they will do pretty good.
