only do this if it is marine ply! a friend tried this with his cabs made from 18mm wbp,and you will end up splitting the top as it comes off! if it was glued well enough that is! 
more bass please

drilling the holes at the back of the chamber will be extremly difficult as you probably don't have a enough room to get a drill chuck in. Perhaps you could use one of those flexible drill shafts? I have never used one but they look useful if they work properly.
 
Francis's suggestion is best if you can do it without mullering the cab. Taking a crowbar to your pride and joy is always painfull. If the top doesn't come off without a fight when you have removed all the screws (including the brace), I would carefully cut along the joint using a plunge saw. Make sure that the saw blade thickness is in the end panel so that you can just replace the whole panel once it is off.

Consider using clamps rather than bolting through the chassis perhaps.  Means you don't have to be quite so accurate with the hole positions.

Or just use 1850 drivers...  A lot less hassle...

Whip the screws out the top and use a festool saw on a guide to slice the top off the cab, you loose 3.2mm of material which if you are good can be 0.2mm of cab and 3mm of lid, screw lid back on upside down and make good with P38....

Thanks for all of your suggestions, I don't really feel confident enough to start hacking the cabs apart my self. The clamp idea sounds like the best bet, does anyone know where i can get suitable ones from at all?
