You have it right Mike.  That's how I set it up.  I'd say that with your 
set up you should have no problems, particularly with the extra height of 
your tower.  My guys are also insulated...the only thing I didn't mention - 
using Phylistran cabling....I wish I knew the capacitance....all I can say 
is it is a BIG cap...large spacing.  Size is about 14 inches long, and 
about 8 inches height and width.  Good luck with your setup!
