    I was curious if anyone has the fortune of having both DonnyFL Emperor V3 and V2 and noticed if one was anymore quiet than the other one.  

    I have been deciding on which one to get to quiet down a Vulcan2 30cal gun.

    Thanks in advance.

    I have both the V2 & V3 for a .40 cal Badger.  The only reason I bought the V3 was for the 6.5" extension.  On the Badger I could not really tell a diference between the V2 & V3.  IMHO with the volume of air the Vulcan 2 in .30 is putting out you would not hear any difference.  After adding the 6.5 extension there was a big difference, but that is another story.

    I have a Ronin on an FX Impact .30 and because the end cap of the Ronin will fit the V3 I have tried the V3 on the Impact.  To my ear I could not tell a difference.   Tells me the Ronin is the "right size" for the .30 cal Impact or equal power level rifle.  Unless you want the look of the longer can, either version of the Emperor may be more suppressor than you need for the rifle.  Another note, the 6.5 extension fits the Ronin, so if you bought the Ronin and wanted more volume in the can it is easy to add it.

    Thanks for the response.  I have a Ronin-not V3 and it quiets the vulcan2 30 cal down some but it's still too loud for me.  It's set at 880fps for the 44.75gn JSBs and is quite louder than when it was originally set at 860fps.  I did get a 30 cal Emperor V3 for it and it's much more quiet than with the Ronin.  I might get the 6.5 extension for it.

    The 6.5 extension does bring the sound level down some more.  If you already have an Emperor V3 the V2 will do nothing for you from my experience with them.

    Can anyone compared either of these models to the Trident Moderator 

    I have both Ronin and Emperor V1 both help but would like quieter if possible.

    What is your FX Impact 30 cal velocity running at?  I am just trying to compare apples to apples so to speak and since my Vulcan2 is set at 880fps.

    900+ FPS and around 85ft-lbs

    Donny told me when I was looking for a LDC for my 30 Bully that if your airgun shoots around 900 FPS or more to go with the Emperor and if it shot  under the 900 FPS the Ronin would work, that’s how I picked the Emperor for my Bully and it’s very quite now.

    This was about 2-3 weeks before he changed the end cap and a bit longer before he did the V3.

    Great information and thanks for the replies.  I might get the DonnyFL 6.5" add on moderator for the V3 Emperor since stealth is becoming all the more important as time goes on.

    I have a Ronin on my Impact .30 at 100fpe and tried an Emperor. The Emperor v3 has almost a 1/2' hole through it and is not quieter at all on my gun. It has a lower tone but more pop. I prefer the Ronin with UNI BF1 filter foam  in place of the felt.

    Can you give us some more info on the difference in sound on the Ronin with the foam compared to the felt it comes with? I have a Shogun on my Impact .25 and Sumo on my Streamline .22. The Streamline is whisper quiet. The Impact with Shogun is not. Wondering if the larger diameter of Ronin was the way to go?

    Aloha SpeedStar,

    I have several moderators from donnyfl & hugget. I have played with different materials to see which type will make my guns the most quiet. Here's my list with what made my guns the quietest. 

    Fx impactX .25 700mm w/ emperor v3 wrapped with high density foam. 

    Edgun R5M long .25 w/ ronin wrapped with plumber's felt (3/16 thick) 

    Taipan veteran std.. 25 w/ shogun wrapped with high density foam

    Brocock bantam sniper hr .25 w/ sumo wrapped with uni-foam 

    Fx streamline .22 w/ sumo wrapped with plumber's felt 

    And just waiting for my Charlie Frear tuned cricket .25 I have to see what works best for this gun.

    Hope this helps. If you have questions PM me. 

    Aloha, 

    Keone

    On your Edgun R5 put the felt inside your shroud and I bet you you don't need a moderator. I've shot jsb mk2s at 880 feet per second in the muzzle noise is very quiet. Quite amazing and satisfying.
