Help with gurgling noises from overflow box

Can anybody make suggestions on getting rid of that gurgling noise from the overflow box?

The water draining starts to make that tornado looking funnel into the tube and that's when the noise starts.

I am running a Mag7 return.

Even with the sponge on the inlet tube, it still makes noise. Sometimes I will even get water surges into the sump. It's very bizzare!

SG, sometimes just putting a sponge in the inlet will work on keeping the noise down. the water level inside the overflow might rise a little, youd have to keep an eye on it.

my buddy had the same problems. he was going to build this big ole elaborate stockman pipe. at my suggestion he tried that and it works like a charm
