Thanks man. Your build thread was a great guide for me while building it. Not only did I refer back to it several times I even used pocket screws and double lined the speaker gasket like CECAA850 did on yours. Huge thanks to both of you.
I couldn't really mount the amp in the side of the box for room reasons. I don't know if it shows in the pic but the F20 is actually jammed up against the CV E715 with zero room left over. I'm actually going to have to shift the entertainment center over a few inched so I can get the main back all the way in there and hopefully angle it slightly towards the lp. I actually bought a speakon connector but realized I couldn't use it for the same reason I didn't put the amp in the access panel.
The placement on top of the E715 is just temporary until I get used to it. I'll probably relocate it to the rack where I have everything else. By mounting it in its own box and leaving the back and one of the sides open I'm hoping to get extra airflow to it as well to help keep it cool.
I didn't use MDF like yours but actually wished I had several times when dealing with the cheap ply. I'm a big guy so the extra weight wouldn't really have been a huge issue for me. This is the first time I've built anything in ply so it was an experience for me. It's easier to work with but I cussed it all through the build.
By the way, the pocket screw jig rules! I love it. It's one of those tools you wonder why you never used before. It's definitely a must have for this type of work.
