I know my intakes and and outputs are in plain sight and I did a lot of thinking before deciding to do them that way.

Ultimately for me it came down to convenience and what I thought was common sense.

I didn't want the intakes restricted in any way. I didn't want the outputs restricted in any way. I'm sure I could have found a way to "hide" both of them, but being a rookie at building this, I figured that was one less thing to screw up...

I'm OK with what I've got. Would I change it next time? Maybe... but it would be a TON of extra work/planning... so I'm not sure. I know this: No one yet has said: "Man, that looks awesome, but those filter intakes really detract from the whole experience"
