Personal preference, but I use the maxair 2 over my fantastic fan. You have to have enough windows open to allow the fan to work as designed. I find that I get all the breeze ( and noise ) I want with the fan on "2". It will suck enough air that the bathroom door will pull tight (but not shut itself) when the fan is on and the door is near closed.

I guess if you want to get technical you can figure out the vent area for the maxair 2 vs. the fan size also. Remember that the cover will not open all the way (to my knowledge) with either setup and take that into account also

So, to sum it up without a lot of math, I am quite happy with my maxair 2 covering my fantastic fan. Check out the maxair website and see what they say. Don't forget the price difference!

I now just need to convince myself to drag my meager 225 pound body on the roof to do the deed...

It makes a huge difference in the "shake factor" while working
