In a cabinet is fine, they don't get overheated.
I think it's noisier if you have one tube "wide open"
Is a "T" connector something one can buy at a hardware store? I was kind of thinking that leaving it open would sort of help control the amount of air but I guess it makes sense to have it partly blocked at least.
