i didn't want to do any raining either noah, so let's cast it more as good info for future builders...
guys, designs such as this are optimized when the horn and the woofer are mated as close together as possible, as this creates the best possible accoustical summation of sound from two different point sources. the further the two sources go apart, the more you run into cancellations, lobing effects, and all kinds of other nasties...
i hate to sound negative because the design does so much very well. the spacing is kind of like moving from 93% to 95% of perfection, while most other designs might be down at 50% or something like that, so the build is very nice all things considered.
