This looks very interesting, are you going to have 2 semi-circle outlets or a single converged outlet.

This is reverse ducting.
The 2 exit inlet join back to one circle and one single mylar pipe go straight back.

I saw this thing in Tams shop ... it is beautiful. I can only imagine what a twin TJ100 will sound like

Tam, how many cells do you expect this thing to need .... 20 or so

This will be cool to watch. When you get it to work, a MB-339 would be nice to see next.
