Default Alpair 5.2 cutout/rebate specs?

Going to go ahead and build the Bloodhound boxes for these drivers even though being able to actually buy them might be a month away or more. Does anyone have the Mark Audio spec sheet on these or can maybe tell me the cutout and rebate dimensions? I got the wood cut about a week ago and I have the time to build since I'm of work for a few weeks since I had a bad run in with my table saw (lost about 1/8 of a inch off my right thumb). I am currently in the finishing stages of completing my Maeshowe and Silbury builds. I'll post pictures once I'm done.

Thanks

I saw that drawing, but it only shows the magnet diameter and the diameter of the bezel. Unless I'm going blind I don't see the actual speaker basket diameter for the through hole on baffle. I could make an educated guess, but I know tolerances are tight and I would probably mess up.

I agree!

May I ask what are the sonic differences of a spiderless pure free-to-air mechanical design such as Alpair 5, compared to something with a spider, let's say an Alpair 6/7?
