Default Please check my wiring diagram...

This is the schematic for the Modulus MT's:

Does it look fine? Any tips? For the large junctions, should I use terminals? Should I seperate the circuit for the tweeter and mid woofer?

neato.
Should I use terminals? Should I run the jumpers under the board or on top?

Screw terminals are easier to use than trying to solder heavy gauge wire if you don't have a high wattage iron. Jumper wires are your choice - whatever is easier.

Do you bi-wire or want to, or even have plans to bi-amp?
Than I would suggest to separate the circuit.

Has any of you ever tried a gas soldering device (use a jet burner myself) to solder the heavy wire stuff? It's cheap and very very quick!

That's a series crossover - you can't really split it up and biwire (A waste of money even if you could, IMHO) I don't care for passive bi-amping either. Actively crossed over bi/tri/quad amped is my preferred route.

I tried a similar torch, it didn't have enough heat to solder two 12 gauge wires into a WBT type binding post. I ended up using a plumber's torch very carefully. I remember seeing soldering iron tips for them a long time ago, but haven't seen them recently.

OOps indeed a series filter, like my old vifa impulse speakers...

I've soldered my plumbing with that torch, even soldered 16 square millimeter garden-hose like cables to install a second battery in my car.

What's the crossection of the wires on these components? The largest junction is 5 wires. With these reasonably low values for the coils (but also low internal resistance...) I suppose not too thick?

Tip: be careful with the caps not to make them too hot! That's why I would advise a gas torch, the quicker you can solder the better for the components...

I'll just have to pick up a 40 watt weller sometime. Right now all I have is a 15 watt radioshack iron. Ive really never needed to heat up components that much to get a good solder joint.

I have two 40 watt wellers (one without and one with transformer), they wouldn't have done the job in many cases....
They're great quality to have for other jobs though....

A turbo-lighter can allready help when things get tough on you.....
