You posted your question and photo about the size of the OP24 in the section for Q&A with Ovation Guitars. I think it was set up to communicate with the factory, so we can't respond.
Anyway, the 24+ is just a bit longer, maybe 1/8 inch. It shouldn't be too difficult to cut the hole bigger, if necessary.

Now we just have to get the old one out. Ovation glued in the pre-amp box...
The mount is glued to the inside of the bowl and the pre-amp is bolted to the mount.
To remove the pre-amp, gently lift the thin plastic face plate from the front of the amp. It's stuck down with pressure-sensitive adhesive.
Under it, you'll find 4 screws. Remove these screws and the front circuit board can be unplugged and the pre-amp removed from the inside of the mount. Be sure to support the pre-amp as you loosen the screws so it doesn't fall out.
