CellarPro 3200VSi vs. WhisperKool XLT 3000 Noise Comparison



Summary:

CellarPro's 3200VSi cooling units with variable-speed fans are significantly quieter than WhisperKool's XLT 3000 at the low and medium fan speeds. At the high fan speed, CellarPro is slightly louder, yet it is more powerful at both the medium and high fan speeds. The decibel readings for the CellarPro and, WhisperKool XLT 3000 wine cooling units were measured in identical conditions while the fans and compressor were cycled "on".

Test Conditions:

  • Both wine cooling units were installed and tested in the same test wine cellar.
  • The decibel measurements were recorded three feet from the wine cooling unit and six feet above the floor.
  • CellarPro's 3200VSi offers three variable-speed settings - Low, Medium and High - to meet variable cooling needs and ambient conditions. Decibel measurements were recorded at all three fan settings and displayed in the above chart.
  • WhisperKool's XLT 3000 does not offer variable-speed fan control.
