Dave, that's what happens when you choke a DC. They are not made to overcome high static pressure (choking down), and so you lose air flow. I've run the largest ducting I can to every tool, and replaced dust hoods to replace a 4" port with a 6" one. The other thing to remember is that any separator will add some drag to a system, reducing air flow. That's generally why you'll see cyclones have the larger motors/impellers, to oversome the resistance of the cyclone itself.
