Hey Reality, I did reply but on my mobile so not sure what happened. I'm shifting management at the moment so not out as much, I actually shut it down a few months ago but sorting it for the summer as have a few dates lined up. Trouble is, St.Cath. north is on a "state of emergency" so everywhere shuts by 9pm.
I'll try to upload with your instructions once I've uploaded the pics to a laptop from my mobile.

Stacked my hogs like so yesterday and couldn't believe how quiet it was behind/to side of scoops but how heavy it was in front of them....can definitely understand why JA sounds stack minis this way if it is due to noise restrictions! Just stick the bass cabs in people's faces...

When considering apparent effects like that, remember that a 60Hz soundwave is physically about 5.7 metres long in the air, so you should be listening from further away to be able to really judge where the sound is going. Even 100Hz is 3.4 metres.
What you will find is that the bass is actually omnidirectional in the horizontal plane, from a single point, tall vertical stack like that, at any reasonable distance. 
You have to make a very wide array of bins (more than 1 wavelength wide at the lowest frequency you want to produce) to get the bass to form a "power alley" where more energy is directed forwards and back, and less to the sides. Even then, that's a dipole, so you are still throwing half the bass backwards where it's not necessarily wanted. Hence all the developments in cardioid bass systems, that use additional bins to absorb the unwanted rear waves.
I haven't seen any evidence of JA systems doing that yet.....
