he didnt load the cab or make the holes to put the drivers in how can get round the back to screw one in as its a tight gap?

oh dear , i doubt you will be able to get a driver in there then, made that mistake before, looks like you may have to start again...

If you want people to feel the bass then a reflex design is probably best as you get the most air movement per decibel from those.      errrrr yes wtf?

Sell em on ebay!!!! no one will know untill they get em HAHAHHA Evil%20Smile
 
But seriously, you should be able to do it, the guy in the other thread did it.
 
I assume you mean the bold holes were missing, not the driver hole.... cos that would be serious!!!
 
But if the worst comes to the worst, i'd hack off the lid, cut the baffle hole/bolt holes sand down the scraps of lid and hard glue then fit a new top on it.

not quite so much of a problem then but still not ideal, have you tried getting a drill through the access panel? im guessing its going to be tight, ive been here before with the seleniums and its not the end of the world, howether the seleniums had an almost completely removeable side right in front of the drivers so i wasnt in such a tight space, still doable though, just not easy...

one of these should do the trick, flexible drill shaft:
 
 
Or perhaps one of these angled drill chucks:
 
 
also available from screwfix:
