This is how to silence an EL transformer, or at least make it quieter, not completely silence it...

Huh, I have had this problem, never thought of that. Wonder if epoxy might not be better, just thinking of heat issues as your using hot glue. But, then again its probably not on for long

I thought this was about silencing high freq leakage >.<

All good though, cos xformer buzzing can be quite annoying :)
how does it make it quieter?

As a noise is created the noise is carried "in" the air, moving the air back and forth. The glue decreases the amount of air movement making the transformer quieter.
