Im not going to read everything so if i missed something sorry, here is my 2c. So many things i would do differently here. First;y chip board :BWAHAHAH: i would change that to mdf or ply. Then i would recess the drivers and angle the back for better flow for the driver, do better bracing also. Would also play with dog blanket instead of think pink. Just my  :2c:

nothing wrong with this chipboard construction and the think pink in these speakers.

One way  out is to get the current weetbix and cover with / add  4 or 6mm MDF  each side  to get a nice and very usable sandwich ( 24-28 mm)
