A: I don't think you can as that sounds like an issue of airflow from the plenum (main part of your ducting) If there's too much air flow to that duct (as in others are closed off) it could create an issue of excessive air to the individual vent and create more sound. But I'm a contractor and not an HVAC expert by any means. Hope this helps.
A: Hi, we don't think the noise has anything to do with the register. We sell millions of registers every year and we've never had any feedback on the registers being "noisier".
A: Hi, the damper box has two parts - the actual damper box, which clips onto the faceplate, and the slider, which clips into the damper box and controls the airflow. The slider can be removed, but won't make any difference to the airflow because it's the open part of the faceplate that determines the amount of airflow. Decor Grates switched to plastic damper boxes 20 years ago because metal damper boxes rust and the sharp edges can easily cut, when you try to adjust the airflow. While plain contractor register damper boxes continue to be made of painted steel, we pioneered the use of high impact plastic damper boxes for decorative register damper boxes. This is not a cheaper option, we believe it's the best option.
A: Yes you could remove the fins, but it would involve cutting them. It would be quite easy. I haven't had any problems with mine.
A: Not without breaking out the entire bottom piece which helps it stay in place. We've had no problems with it just the way it is.
