wish big S would have kept the 10 speed mounting protocol for this....

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

You can mount the Junction box anywhere you want in the system, it doesn't have to even be accessible.

One place that is common is to mount it on the seat tube right by the FD..

All that is required is to connect the left shifter to the right shifter and then run a long wire from the right shifter into the internal junction box.

I plan to do this next time my bike needs new bar tape..
