    Reduced to what? You'd be better of explaining how many individual runs and the size of each you got on that whole trunkline from the plenum to the end cap for an accurate answer.

    Also how many CFM availble, how many required and whats on the other side as well.

    You need to include what the return will consist of as well.

    8X24,1200 cfms,is .1 friction Rate,which is a rule of "dumb".

    You need a Man.D duct design!

    If your going to guess ,use .08FR for supply and .06 for return duct.Then it will be less money to make it right in the future.
