Jim's gates are how I have my homemade ones designed. IMHO that's the best design since it prevents any clogging from happening, you just have to make sure you have room for them. I actually have nearly all of the parts for mine, but time has become a priority for me, so I'm giving the Clearvue 6" gates a shot. Mine are going to be used to close off of the branches from the central trunk, and to "shorten" the central trunk. I'm also installing the 5HP clearvue, my arrangement is significantly less complex than yours. The terminations of my ducts will have individual blast gates for each 4" (I'm trying the boxes from clearvue with the 4" gates in them too.) I am looking forward to seeing how your arrangement turns out!
