Title: Vent structure with slotted rectangular outlet

Abstract: A vent structure with a slotted rectangular outlet includes a cylindrical connector section to mate with a cylindrical duct, a flared and curved transition section, and a rectangular outlet section. The structure is formed in such a manner that turbulence is minimized in air flowing through the structure to thereby lessen the generation of airflow noise. The structure is sized and shaped to fit within a stud wall formed by conventionally sized studs positioned at a typical spacing. The structure includes a mounting plate with a mounting channel to receive an extendible mounting bracket, the ends of which are fastened to studs between which the structure is mounted.
