Re: Chassis layout
Jim, old school equipment often had field-coil speakers : the power supply choke was also an electromagnet for the speaker. These were mounted on the basketb and looked like OPT's - maybe that's what you mean?  
Having the OPT's on the chassis shortens the leads, that much is for sure.  
Re : mounting PT's at the bottom, I think it would be good practice, gets your stray magnetic fields out of the equation.
