Dust Extractor volume in enclosure

HI guys,

I hope somebody can assist me with this. I have a modified x-carve 1mx1m that i installed in a custom built dust proof enclosure. I have connected a single bag dust extractor to the side of the enclosure and now need to allow for sufficient air to flow in to ensure i get the maximum suction from my dust extractor.

The extractor sucks 42m3/min and the enclosure around the machine is 1,2m wide, 1,1m deep and 600mm high.

How big must i make the vent to ensure the ratio of sucking and air available will be enough.
