There you go! Avoid that nasty analysis paralysis. With all the good advice available here, it's terribly easy to get stuck worrying about minutia and not get to building and having fun.

They are frustrating but you learn more from mistakes than successes.

That second image doesn't show where the electronics will go. This one makes it clear.

Thanks, thats helpful and raises a point I should consider; I'd planned to just shove everything around the back to keep the aesthetics simple. But it could be better to have the gubbins accessible from the front, so perhaps I should make the effort to design for that that.

I guess a compromise may be to have them removable from the back, but on leads at least long enough to let them be placed somewhere comfortably accessible when required. Which would actually be like a temporary version of Andrew's suggestion of a separate amp box next to the speaker.

Hmm, perhaps I could have separate amp boxes and make them stackable or something, i.e. the amps could double as a speaker stand, a bit like designs in which the mid/tweeter box is separate to the bass enclosure.

Much to ponder!
