The Maxx Air vent is designed to fit over any 14" square vent. The Fantastic Fan cover is about 2 -3 X more, but I'm not sure it's worth a few percentage better air flow for the money.

Yeah I regular Maxx Air is about $30, the Maxx Air 850 (with a bigger vent opening for Fantastic Fans) is about $70

I see one advantage to the bigger one, the fan is made to operate with a certain amount of air flow, if you choke down that air flow it will cause the electric motor to draw more amps and work a little harder

I have the 850 style over all my Fantastics

Short answer to your question elbeau54, is yes. If properly installed they will be fine. I have them over my Fantastic fans and really like them. Had them for several years.
