Klaus Heinz is very good designer so i'm sure he is aware of every detail regarding performance of his loudspeakers.

Adding braces inside and changing crossover might be everything it needs. Now would be a good time for someone to buy them and measure raw drivers in factory cabinets so we can tinker with it a bit.

The Q150 drivers are not the same as LS50. More distortion expected in the low end.

Of course. Point of crossover should be determined by measuring. No problem going up to 400-500 Hz if distortion is too severe down low making it a classic three way.
