We don't need them exactly aligned, a lot can be fixed in the crossover.
I ran into that problem before a long time ago. Not being very skilled I couldn't get it to work very well. Since I was using an expensive horn with a cheap woofer, I bought a new larger woofer. I went from a 12" to a 15", and it had 2.5" more depth. It was definitely an improvement, except for the beaming because I was crossing over at 1200hz.
Since then I've replaced the driver with a TD15M, which has a depth 8.5". I recently bought a pair of the QSC horns, based on your measurements, to see how they will work with the TD15Ms, even though I probably won't get around to it until after the new year.
The TD15Ms sound great, but they are effing heavy. I actually use mine in a PA system, but I plan on phasing them out and using them in a two channel system for home only. They are just too heavy to lug around.
It's one thing when your young or have lots of help. It's another when you're old and do most of it your self. Setting up isn't too bad, but after a gig, when it's late and you're tired, dragging heavy equipment around is a real pain. I've recently replaced the alcino drivers in my guitar cabinet with neo drivers. I cannot believe the difference in weight. From now on, neo only if I have to transport it.
Good luck Brandon. I hope you get these and your high end version to work. If you do, I plan on building both. The high end for home, but using my TD15Ms, and the neo version for on the road.
Thanks for all your hard work,
