    It is actually a combination of the opener and the door itself. A door with non-metal rollers will product much less noise as it travels along the track. Also, a nicer belt drive opener will keep the noise to a minimum. One such opener is this one http://www.liftmaster.com/consumerweb/pages/productmodeldetail.aspx?modelId=717 . I have heard a nicer door with an older model of this opener and it is amazingly quiet, both in the room above the garage as well as inside the garage while in operation.

    It seems to me that any rollup garage door is going to transfer noise and vibration into that bedroom. Maybe you should consider a swinging garage door, like this - http://www.realcarriagedoors.com/

    add teflon ball bearing rollers and dc belt drive. they are super quiet. and rubber mounting bushing between opener and angle to ceiling.
