If it is possible, positioning the dust collector centrally among the machinery could reduce static pressure. For example if the dust collector was between the miter saw and drill press, the length of pipe on each leg would be cut about in half and therefore should improve air flow at the ends of the two branches.

That would lengthen the exhaust pipe. But since the dust in the exhaust is fine dust and would seem to remain suspended in the air better than large dust, 6” exhaust to the outdoors could have enough air flow to keep most of the fine dust from settling out.
