Excellent options. Quite sure will make a positive addition.

Assume you used the MOTU routing software? (Highly recommended for anyone working with large numbers of channels/speakers.)

From your post of 12 March 2019, does some or all of this still apply?

I wanted to report back and let everyone know that I have been experimenting with more routing/speaker placement options. I extended my original 12' shelves to 16', and added a third row. So now, instead of 12 speakers crammed into a 12' space, there are 8 per 16' row, spread over 3 shelves. I also turned them all randomly - some as much as 90 degrees left or right. Major improvement. I'm still just not sure about the routing. It's like each way I try, there things I like, and things I don't.

Tonight I reverted back to doing 2 groups - 1 group of 4 speakers for 32' stops, and all the rest routed to group 2, of 44 speakers, cyclic. And this worked very well. I'm afraid I am chasing my tail at this point.... so....

I think I'm calling the instrument "done."

Some of that is accurate. When I posed that originally, yes, I went back to 2 groups, but I have since changed again to the scheme pictured in the previous post.

All of the speakers are still placed facing randomly - Three 18' rows of shelves, with 8 speakers each.
