That is a fine design Jeremy; check out my build for my Clearvue DC:
The “box” in the front of the closet is for the airflow out of the closet, it contains baffles inside, similar to your plan. The cross sectional area at every point in the outflow must be larger than the area of the inflow; eg. I use 6” ducting into the DC, the cross sectional area of the outflow is equal to an 8” diameter pipe. I have absolutely no problem with airflow!! There is a community forum on the website; most of the guys there have done some sort of baffle box like you are proposing.
