The collector is as centrally located as it could be given the somewhat awkward layout of my basement. The ducts have 2-3 90s which are unavoidable given the layout.
I could upgrade to a 3HP collector and practically double the cfm. But, this would be costly.
Was it a mistake to think that a 1 1/2 HP collector would work for a system of 4" ducts? I would prefer not to roll a dust collector around when I am using the shop, but I am wondering if two 1 1/2 HP collectors (one in either side of the shop) would give better results than a single 3HP collector centrally located.
Thoughts would be appreciated.
