My top hat is 7” tall (inside) and the duct sticks down 2” inside the hat. I didn’t know how deep to make it and couldn’t come up with a valid argument to change it so I left it at the length it was. How did you test yours to find the sweet spot?

My dc isn’t noisy to the point that I can’t stand it. I like the wynn filter. I have a Clearview at my other shop and I’m glad I mounted it outside because it is very noisy.

By the way, I noticed you have a sawstop with an aftermarket over arm collector/guard. I had one of those and I wasn’t getting good collection off the blade roost so I changed it out for sawstops and it works fantastic (except when cutting 1/16” off the edge of a board because the blade kicks the dust sideways. How does yours work for you?
