Nice, but you are going to have lobing issues with such a large mtm. Id suggest ditching one of the mids.

Just paid $2000 for a pair of those tweeters, so replacing them is not an option. I could replace the two 8 ohm 12MUs (in series) with a single 4 ohm 12MU (I have both).

The area I am most concerned about is the area behind the tweeter, do you think it will allow the sound to travel unobstructed?

Sorry
The distance behind the tweeter must be longer than the largest dimension of the tweeter.
Here the diagonal is the largest dimension. I think it is the primary condition if you want to minimise the area behind effect/obstruction.

Keep your MTM
