I need some advice on how to set this up correctly. I have a 6 inch carbon filter, ducting and fan from Spider farmer. 

Both sides of the closet are 3ft X 2.5ft with some extra shelving on top. 

The goal is to filter the smell out of the whole room, while keeping the ducting, fan, and filter above the grow and out of the way.

There’s an oscillating fan on the outside of the closet and Central air for fresh air.

Are you wanting to recirculate within the closet, within the room and closet, or to vent outside of the room?

@marswormcastings I am growing in a 5x10 tent not a closet so it's possibly going to be a little more permanent for you.... tent comes with vent holes for the ducting,  closest not so much. You're going to need somewhere to run your ducting out of the closet, may have to cut a hole, but then have to make sure it's sealed for light after the ducting is out the hole. You want to pull the air from in the closet through the filter and out of the room. I would personally go by diagram 2 but 1 would be fine to. Try to have as few big bends in the ducting as possible to a each one reduces air flow. 

You can do it how ever you want but I'd put filter in closet, attach it to the ducting, run the ducting out of the closet to the fan and pull the air out that way.  Nice clean filtered air.  I have to attach my filter directly to my fan but it's the same set up,  here's a pic.  Good luck Thumbs Up

What about having the filter on the floor in the corner, ducting going straight up with fan pulling the warm air from the top grow down to the bottom?. If you want to recirculate the air in the grow room then it would be best to keep the equipment in the grow room, dunno could be wrong, have to have a think about this.

Well, there is no one or right way to do it, so you can adapt your setup to your needs. If recirculating within the entire room and growspace, here is how I would do it.  I'd mount the filter on the intake side of the fan, up high in the closet so that you can remove the buildup of heat when you are dealing with both summer and a closed-up closet.  I'd then route the exhaust side of the fan to a ducting boot on a vent installed in the wall of the closet, pushing filtered air into the room. You can find duct boots at any big-box builder store for about $10 and you can get an inexpensive vent/grate for $5-10.  Easy peasy. This is a setup like the #1 in the diagram you posted, except that the exhaust goes to the outer room.

You would need to make sure you are able to get enough air into the closet, for example under the door, so as to not build negative pressure and stress your fan motor. Keep in mind, this setup will greatly reduce the odor in the room, but every time you open the door and mix the air between the closet and room, you are going to smell the plants... stinky, delicious, mouth-watering plants

🤣 😆 😜 😝 

Hope that helps!
