No, you could do that too, but I was basically refering to a simple box tuned
in size to cancel at 2 kHz. Toss in a thick cloth for additional resistive

You could even go Helmholtz if you want.

Simple passive cancelation. Classical acoustical approach. For 2 kHz it is in
reasnoble sizes.

Another thing is to put heavy lead-rubber on the metal faces to make them less
of a resonator/radiator. That mod can be done inside the box.

There are a whole bunch of other tricks. Pressing on the surfaces of the
whining chamber will make it stiffer and provide a higher acoustical impedance.
Pressing using rubber blocks, from say silicon rubber, is known to work.
