Well maybe I can add some further comments.
I have like 5-sets of automatic temperature activated dual-fan-assemblies on my components.
The ones located in the Opening where the Pull-Out Rack assembly is.
To the (Right) of that pull-out sits two Classe' amps.
On top of each is a fan assembly.
Now, here is what's important in regards to noise.
If you were sitting really close to that area there is no doubt in my mind you could hear those fans.
Especially if you were running the system really hard at the higher volume levels.
That would be in really Low-Scenes with Very-Quiet conversations or action.
If though it was like a normal movie at normal listening levels there is No-Way you could possibly hear those fan assemblies.

Also in my case with me having my room redone and the seating Relocated to a closer viewing position to screen.
You are never-ever going to hear them where we sit now.
Distance around 10-11 feet to the rear of us.

So, now speaking of the Split-Unit and Noise from it's fan-Assembly if it was set on Automatic and the Heat in the HT rose to where it then Ramped-Up the fan.
Yes, if the Split-Unit-Air-Carrier was located really close to where you sit my opinion is it's conceivable you might hear the Fans.
Especially if they actually went to Full-Speed !!!

In my situation where the Air-Carrier is located (Now) we don't even know it's in the HT room.
Especially if it's running on it's Low-Speed set on Automatic.
I am sitting 11' from the Center of the Air-Carrier approximately.
If you have not used one of these units and especially in the HT ???
I set the temperature and never really have to adjust it after that.
The room stays at the exact temperature you set the temperature at.
(Unless you have a lot of people in the room adding to the overall Heat generated)
Then simply adjust it down some to compensate ahead of time or let it do it Automatically.
