Ditto on the Wynn Canister. It will improve the performance, not just in filtration, but because it’s more efficient, you get more suction.

The big “drag” in hard piping is avoiding sharp angles and maintaining smooth walls. With 1.5HP you are pretty much limited to 4” pipe. Use 45 degree elbows with a short length of straight pipe instead of 90 degree elbows. For the drops, use Wyes, not T’s, and angle them so the wide part is away from the DC. Use blast gates on all drops, and minimize flex hose.

I’d probably plumb my system first, see how it works, and then consider adding a Thein baffle.
