Improve dust collection for my DW717 10" sliding compound miter saw

I am looking to improve the dust collecting ability feature of my mitre saw....does anyone have any solutions to improve on this severely anemic dust collection feature from Dewalt?

I have a 12" Dewalt compound miter saw. I purchased this to control the dust. It just got delivered yesterday so no real results. It looks a bit bulky but seems to be the best way to go. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

The only thing I ever found to improve dust collection was to build an enclosure. I made one out of "on hand" materials, to include old hurricane shutters. Made no effort to make it look good as all I wanted to do was control dust.


I believe you can buy canvas versions.
