If someone sees a better way to do it, post it.
Ya know, maybe a T-slot router bit? It might allow you to slide the tweeters right down the line into place, dab a little hot glue on each one, then put the top piece on to sandwich them together. The T-slot could make them pretty tight if you found the right size.
Actually, none of that may be needed. How's this: 3/4" mdf for the baffle. You know how you flush mount a driver? Well, just do that in reverse. Flush mount from the back, problem solved. If the driver portion is 1", and those odd flanges make it 1.25", route out 1.25" from the back as deep as those flanges are thick, then cut the 1" though hole. Now use a 1/2" roundover bit on the front portion of the driver hole. Done!
Sit the tweeter in from behind, either hot glue the sucker in, or any thin piece of plastic or metal strip along the entire length.....you put a screw through that plastic strip in between each tweeter to hold it in place. Hot glue would be real quick though.
If you could find the exact size rabbet bit, man that would be quick. Cut the through hole first, then run a rabbet bit around the back side of the hole for the flange to sit into. They make rabbet bits with the guide don't they? I think I have one.
