Answer: 
Roy, I'm sure this refers to 360 degrees, meaning full circle. Geometry tells us that 90* is a right angle or 1/4 circle, 180* a straight line or half-circle. The fan does not move air from any particular direction, rather it pulls air from every direction or a full circle pattern.

What is the dual adaptor for 4" or 6" ducts?

Is the adaptor a collar or fitting of some type and how is it attached to the unit. The pictures would indicate that a 6" duct fitting is standard. How does the 4" duct adaptor option get connected?

good question. mine didn't come with any 6 to 4in adapter. which was okay for me as I ran a 6in duct all the way outside.
And even if they included an adapter ... i wouldn't use it. this fan is designed for a 6in duct which makes it run most efficient and very quiet. if you connect it to a 4in duct, it will either run louder or will move less air. if you need to connect to a 4in duct, my suggestion is to

Answer: 
There is NO such 4-in/6-in adaptor in the package. You have to BUY a 6-in/4-in reducer separately.
The fan only comes with a 6" duct fitting, which is factory screw-mounted on the fan housing. So, the manufacturer posted false claim on its specification section.

Answer: 
No, don't do it. Any ventilation fan exhaust must be directed outside the home. Otherwise you risk mold, wood rot, pests, or a grease fire.

Answer: 
there are fans that install more easily without access from above. I would not recommend this one for installation from below only unless you are willing to cut open the ceiling a few inches bigger than the fan housing (which is 10 1/4 x 10 1/4) and patch it up after it is in.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 34 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Fan! The fan is exactly what I have been looking for. Very easy to install from the attic. At first when I turned it on I thought it was not working to its full power. When I hooked up the exhaust tube I placed my hand over the opining and was shocked on how much air was pushing out. I put the fan in the Kids bathroom. I purposely hooked the fan and a light over the shower together so when the fan is on the light is on. That way you know the fan is on It is so quiet. July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great fan This fan is really well thought out. It's very easy to install as a retrofit even if you don't have attic access. Despite what it says, you'll need to by a separate reducer if you want to hook it up to a 4" duct, though. July 26, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Replaced my bathroom exhaust fan The fan is not really designed as a replacement fan. Panasonic has apparently only given thought to new installations. I had to disassemble the fan and get a helper in order to install it in the ceiling (one person in the attic and the other in the bathroom). Once installed the fan works great. I can barely hear anything when it is on. I suggest installing a timer in place of a switch, otherwise you may forget the fan is on. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent fan Replaced another fan from a different brand with this one. Went in easy, works great (no steam on windows or mirrors). Just be sure to use 6 inch venting with no right angles, should work great. May 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quiet, Quality unit Extremely quiet, quality unit for larger area ... if installed properly. Would be wise to note - especially in a replacement of existing unit situation- requires a 6" exhaust duct where most older units typically were ducted with a 3" or 4" duct. June 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good purchase Noise is very low, and it can be heard if door is closed. June 7, 2016
