Standpipe Cross Mod help

So I'm building my first reef tank (yay!). It is 100g and I'm building an overflow/false wall in the back. It will be about 40 inches long and have the heater in it. I want water to circulate evenly around the heater so I don't think a single drain would do the trick. I like the idea of a quiet drain so I thought I could mod the Durso to work for my situation. I haven't tried it yet and I was hoping to get some opinions on whether it will work or not. Here's my doodle:

It would be two inlets on a cross connector with the cap and adjustable air check valve at the top. Max flow, max silence, max circulation. Will it work??
