Ive just set up my 60x60x140 grow tent and found my fan and filter to be on the large side and taking up too much limited head room. So im looking to sit tge carbon filter next to tge tent with fan directly on top pulling air from the tent to the fan. I have read mixed ideas as to if this is effective. Im dubious that there will be enough pressure to push the air through the filter. Anybody have experience with this method?

I always have externally mounted my extraction fan and carbon filter because my tent is 150cm tall and I gain that extra foot by doing this. It works well as long as you are pulling hot air out of the top of the tent and allowing cool air in the bottom. Keep the duct work as short as possible with as few bends as possible and you should be fine.

@monkeydo is it better to remove the pre filter when doing it this way?

@tenthsam Being on the outside of the filter, when you do the reversal of the filter the pre filter has no real function so yer, take it off the outside of the carbon filter assembly as it’s not gonna do anything but create back pressure.
