Vacuum Reserve Canister Plumbing?

I ordered a vacuum canister last week and have a question about placement. My engine makes only 9 " of vacuum at idle, 18" at 1200 RPM and I am running a dual diaphram 7" booster, one good stop - then hard pedal, but you can still lock'em up.
My question is on placement of the can. I figure it should as close to the booster as possible but I'm going to have to run about 5'of
vacuum hose from the manifold to the can then 2' back to the booster. Will this have an adverse effect on what what I'm trying to accomplish? I don't want to run a noisey Vac pump if possible!
