    Does it matter if you put the port on the front panel or back panel? I think it would look better with it in the back, also are the tweeters recomended to be on the outside or inside?

    I used dual 3" ports on the front panel about 8" long. Looks like an over-under shotgun :)
    As for the tweeters, I actually messed up and put both tweeters on the left. It was late, I was tired, and I ended up with both tweeters on the left. Oops. It didn't seem to hurt the end result. Imaging is great, vocals are centered and stable.
    I am not recommending you put both tweeters on the left. The folks at Adire know far more than I do about designing speakers so I will leave the left vs right question up to them.
