I just put in a preorder for one, looking forward to trying it out.

Make sure you use a "finish" bit or a band new bit that is really sharp. Do not cheap out on the bit or you will have a messed up hole.

All of these are great ideas to think about.  I think an overarching problem though is that many musicians in clubs may want good sound, but aren't willing to sacrifice their egos for it. 
Guitar guy is gonna bring his Marshall half-stack and crank it up.  Drummer has gotta use that marching snare because it's his sound, and won't play behind a shield.  "Don't tell me how to hold a mic."  "Monitor sound's gotta be huge so I can feel it!"  For many of them, this is time to drink, get loud and have fun.  This attitude, more than ignorance in live sound, is what poisons mixes (and why they're perpetually trapped in the low-pay clubs.) 
For years I've tried to promote all of the ideas posted here at one time or another.  But lately, when I get called for a club gig with these types of bands, I've adopted a fight fire with fire approach and just bring a (I'm a bass player) rig that will keep up with the loudest Marshalls and drum kits on stage.  It's madness, but there is no changing of minds for many of these guys.  If you really want to educate, I think you have to get them past this mentality somehow first.
Fortunately, most of the calls I get now are for bands who know better.

After the loop, run the cable down the support leg so the weight is not on the hang.

I thought about doing that, but would need a ladder to reach high enough to tie off the cable; is there an easier way (a trick?) to do this without a ladder?  I'm trying to reduce the deployment time and lugging an 8' ladder around would be a PIA.

So with the "listening for squeals" method, where do you set the frequency on the receiver? Are you running it with the transmitter off? squelch off?
I start by coordinating freqs, avoiding all signals shown on the SA and calculated IMD products, as usual. Then walk test all systems with TX on, squelch @ Pilot Only (my default setting for Shure), and audio source muted. If any squeals can't be resolved by changing freq, re-scanning with the SA, etc., I start hunting for a local source with an affected RX. If I can't locate it, I start fiddling with TX antenna placement, RX attenuation, etc.  All while keeping in mind good audio gain structure into the TX when you unmute the mix, since hitting it a little harder can help to mitigate low level artifacts at the expense of dynamic range. Even open audience mics can effectively mask noise quite a bit.

Don't let the alligators bite............

Roger that.... And I just tried the second 75-ft extension and it calibrates and seems to work correctly. This is getting interesting.

I should have made the distinction in my earlier post-the "faceshield" I mentioned was intended to be one made for arc flash-they have UV protection as well as being designed not to melt  in the event of an arc flash.  Presumaby this is a paying job-charge enough to cover the cost for the correct PPE.  It's cheaper than an ER visit.

Yes, this would be a well paying job, so I'll get the correct PPE and be super safe. I've had a few serious burns in my youth and saw a few arc-flashes from a distance, so I'm very respectful of what can go wrong with this type of experiment. Kids, don't try this at home....

Center of each cabinet to center of next stack is 106
So what is the distance between the subs in each stack?

Or are they stacked vertically, with one facing the rear.

There are several different physical ways to do cardioid, with different results, different delay times etc.

If you took purchase of the EV subs, I would not go investing in all kinds of peripheral gear. You do not have to use a crossover between the subs and the tops. It won't be 100% correct that way, but it is not a requirement.
One issue I see with not running a crossover it the operator trying to get more bass out of the system and then blowing the woofers in the tops because they're running full range. Buying a sub $100 analog crossover (could be $50 used) is not a big purchase and will provide a cleaner overall sound and hopefully eliminate that type of user error.

I'd bet everyone agrees that matching tops are the best solution.
