Is the best way to ensure things are aligned well to install the drivers in the baffle/enclosure and play a tone at crossover frequency with one driver out of phase. Then adjust the delay/phase for maximum null before putting the polarity back as it should be? Microphone presumably lined up at listening posistion/tweeter height. Driver output levels would need to be matched without moving the mic first.

No, not if you want best time alignment. That ensures good phase alignment, but you could be a full wavelength apart (or some other multiple). I'd play a sine wave at the crossover frequency and look at the difference in delay for each speaker from an electrical reference (the reference signal in a two channel measurement setup). Line them up that way and then fine tune using reversed phase.

Ok, yes, I understand

I am unlikely to be a full wavelength or more out with my driver arrangements so that should be fine. The crossover will mess up time alignment if it's 24db LR anyhow, I think? Phase alignment is probably what I'm after really.
