    This kinda looks off topic at first, but it isn't ;)

    We have warm air heating in our house and the there is ducting very close to where the projector will need to sit.

    Could I actually use this ducting to blow the projector into through a hush box? It looks like an output.

    If its suck then it should be fine
    but from what you say this will blow warm air into a hush box and the projector will get hotter and noiser as the fans speed up to cope with the increased temperature. If the air changes in temperature say as the thermostat switches the heat on and off convergence will be a nightmare as the porr old projector heats up and cools down.

    Hush boxes need the removal of warm air.

    Sorry, I must of been asleep on the keyboard again.

    I think that the vent is a extraction vent, not an output. The air gets chucked out though vents on the floor. It naturally goes up through the vents in the ceiling.

    I still think it wont work anyway, because it means the hot air from the room will get concerntrated at the projector which is a shame.
