It is fine, room even for a few smaller holes.

My Em's were stacked in my kitchen, Girlfriend comes in through the door and says:
"Good gods Darrell, those are *expletive* huge!"
"That's a pair love, but that's what they might look like with LF cabs"
"Your off your *expletive* trolley man"
So yes JKRO, I can see why your better half put the kybosh on such an idea.

There's enough wood in a pair of Emkens you can probably make a nice sized
makeshift dwelling and run one of Dave & Chris' smaller designs!

Or knock em down, make smaller design and move in with gf. Half the cabinet hight with same footprint would be ok for my domestic setting.
I'm going to have a look at some washers for mounting the 12lta's, as my fancy marine grade stainless cap head bolts (2.67 for 16!!!) 'heads' don't fit in the frame. Its either a stack of washers with a flat ground on them to space the head up OR grind the outer flange of the basket.
Is the latter a truly bad idea, obviously I'd have to wrap the driver up to stop swarf ingress.

Its not pretty (does that even matter with the Emken?) but I use a 1 inch washer to spread the force/pressure of the bolt.

I'm hoping to find someone to make me a ring of 2-3mm steel the same dims as the 12LTA to act as a clamp.

I'm doing a few bits on them now, the battens in the top and bottom so the back can seal (an oversight in the excitement of them getting together) and some blocks for the rear panel / brace interface.
Then I have to either:
1: grind flats on 80 (yes 80) washers to mount the Lta's.
2: make spacers from some hard plastic I've had lurking for a while.

I can live with the cabinets being unfinished, but not to mount the Lta properly would hack me off proper.

Put all 80 washers on a long bolt and tighten a nut on it.
laying the nut along a belt sander will grind them all at the same time.
