Eheim Classics will run quietly forever. If you don't have room for a 2217 but want that kind of output, put a 2217 impeller into a 2215 head... if you still need more flow, use more coarse media and a thinner layer of floss on top of the stack (but you will have to rinse it out more often) or better yet, add a power head or two.

I have no experience w/ the last option in the original post but would recommend Eheim Classic over the rest of the list.
