I have both the SP-10 and the KAB4.  The KAB4 is WAY quieter than the SP-10, uses less propane too.  The SP-10 is better in the wind.  I have a 82 quart kettle and the SP-10 just wasn't getting the job done, but the KAB4 is too big (wide) for my 44 quart kettle.

The noise will be a funcion of the gas velocity.  More holes for the same BTU will give lower gas velocity and hence, less noise.

I often have to say I am and engineer, then have a discaimer that the subject is not my specialty.  I am a N&V engineer, so for once it matches my specialty.

So do you drive freight or passenger trains?

I have driven a 3500 HP locomotive.   Not much of a challenge, until you try and stop 200 tons with steel on steel.  That was just one locomotive, and no freight behind!

Kids, never try and beat the train.  Never.
