Thanks Pete, AC, much appreciated.
Thanks for the clarification Jay,I appreciate it.
Haven't started veneering yet, I was sidetracked by one of those great ideas that turns out to be more trouble than it's worth
. I wish I would have thought of it one step earlier, before I glued the the top piece of the MTM base, it would have made things easier.
I was thinking about what I was going to do with the crossover, I decided I liked the clean look of the MTM and thought I would hide the crossover in the MTM base. Because the base is already built I had to do this freehand, not perfect but will get the job done. Here is a pic for your amusement:
I realize all my inductors are in the same plane, but I didn't have enough height to vertically mount them, so I chose distance. They are all at least 7" from each other and this actually puts the inductors further apart than if I had added a crossover board in the back of the MTM.
The inner part of the base will be painted black and the components will be hot glued in.
