air filter options - which is best

I just replaced a 4 ton unit with a Ducane. I currently have the 1" in-line filter. The installers recommended upgrading the air filter and gave a few choices.

Media Filter

The house is two stories, 2300 sq feet, central air / heat

The house has two cats. We don't have real allergies but at times we do get congested and stuffy, What system would be best for the home and why.

I would perfer something that can easily install within the ductwork with out a lot of cutting and sheet metal work if possible. The supply side of the duct where the above would have to get intalled is 14" high * 26 deep * 16 wide.

Meida filter would be the best thing to have.

The other two, don't even waste your time looking into them..

The media filters needs to be change out once or twice a year, and only takes 4 sec to change out the filters w/ a new one.
