My doubt is the differing depths of the woofer and waveguide. It looks like the woofer is ~18mm and the waveguide is ~12mm. If I stick with my original plan on of a 12mm outer baffle then it means the woofer will stand slightly proud of the surface but the waveguide will be pretty flush. My concern is whether this will cause a (diffraction based) problem in the response given the promixity of the woofer to the exit from the waveguide. I probably want to recess it (and hence use a thicker inner baffle) for aesthetic reasons but wanted to clarify the technical aspect first. What is the recommended approach in this situation?
Why are you opposed to adding a second layer to the inside of the baffle? I don't think that you would even know it's there and should not be any different, aesthetically.

Can you mount the woofer on the back of the front baffle and use a roundover to give a smother exit? Not sure how that will effect your alignment though, but it will effect how you construct the box so you can change the woofer if you need to.

I don't follow, what do you mean?
