I bought some of those filters through Aerus a long time ago.
I put one in my mom's Lux Legacy, because her vacuum doesn't get cleaned as frequently or thoroughly as mine do. I don't know if it did much. She does always use the four ply Home Solutions bags. So, the bag chamber really does stay pretty clean.
I was concerned that maybe the filter would restrict air flow to the motor. But, I don't know if that's likely.
Sorry this doesn't really help. I just thought I'd share my experience.

Can't hurt. It'd be an extra filter keeping vacuum cleaner inside clean and running better. You may lose a couple cfms but I'd say do it.
