6" or an 8".

You can use an 8" filter with a 6" fan. But not a 6" filter with an 8". Whatever the square footage the filter manufacturer says. Add 200cfm to it. Even after adding up duct elbows, length of duct.

The box stores sell a 6" to 8" adapter.

Fan pulls through the filter. A larger filter means less work for the fan AND the filter will last for more grows.

Don't cheap out on the fan! There are reasons most of us run pretty expensive exhaust fans. I went through 2 cheap ones before I got smart. :bigjoint:
