Im thinking of buying the Vortex 6" Centrifugal Fan 449 cfm (even though the hood has a hole lay out for a 4")and wondering about the set-up.I have a stainless steel reflector hood,(cooltouchlighting.com) 13x24 outside measurements and will add tempered glass. Can I run the duct work from the hood to the fan motor on the floor and then from the fan motor to the outside?

need advice

Yes you can, however, you will need a 4" x 6" reducer (http://www.bghydro.com/BGH/Itemdesc.asp?ic=AFAR064&eq=&Tp=). Place the reducer on the hood if you can and use 6" ducting (http://www.bghydro.com/BGH/Itemdesc.asp?ic=AFADA06X25&eq=&Tp=) from the reducer to the fan and then from the fan outside.

If you find that the fan is to loud then you can also place it onto a speed control (http://www.bghydro.com/BGH/Itemdesc.asp?ic=AFAGS) to slow the fan speed down.
