Hrmm, I'm going to go with a target that's got both Elusive and 9 Maneuvers  nothing else. Sitting still then, they've got +10% Bonus Defense. The attacker will have Accurate and 9 Targeting  nothing else. Their base Bonus Accuracy before weapon mods is +25%.
If we leave it at that, then the following happens:
>100% chance to hit and overflow +1.63% CrtH & +6.52% CrtD
Say we have to pick one mod: ACC or CrtH or CrtD
ACC) >100% chance to hit and overflow +2.5% CrtH & +10% CrtD
CrtH) >100% chance to hit and overflow +3.63% CrtH & +6.52% CrtD
CrtD) >100% chance to hit and overflow +1.63% CrtH & +26.52% CrtD
Say we have to pick one mod: ACCx2 or CrtHx2 or CrtDx2
ACCx2) >100% chance to hit and overflow +3.2% CrtH & +12.96% CrtD
CrtHx2) >100% chance to hit and overflow +5.63% CrtH & +6.52% CrtD
CrtDx2) >100% chance to hit and overflow +1.63% CrtH & +46.52% CrtD
Say we have to pick one mod: ACCx3 or CrtHx3 or CrtDx3
ACCx3) >100% chance to hit and overflow +3.88% CrtH & +15.5% CrtD
CrtHx3) >100% chance to hit and overflow +7.63% CrtH & +6.52% CrtD
CrtDx3) >100% chance to hit and overflow +1.63% CrtH & +66.52% CrtD
Say you went with ACC/CrtH/CrtD...
>100% chance to hit and overflow +4.5% CrtH & +26.52% CrtD
ACC/CrtHx2...
>100% chance to hit and overflow +6.5% CrtH & +6.52% CrtD
CrtHx2/CrtD...
>100% chance to hit and overflow +5.63% CrtH & +26.52% CrtD
Again, ACCx3 is...
>100% chance to hit and overflow +3.88% CrtH & +15.5% CrtD
No mods... (Accurate & 9 Targeting vs. Elusive & 9 Maneuvers at 0 speed)...
>100% chance to hit and overflow +1.63% CrtH & +6.52% CrtD
The 3x ACC mods are giving you +2.25% CrtH and +8.98% CrtD over the no mods weapon against a held target.
Obviously, against a moving target you're going to be looking at the tohit roll. Let's say the target's an Escort, moving at 24+ impulse...no abilities, other gear, etc. Just our Acc/Targeting vs. Elu/Maneuvers/Escort/no penalty for being below 24 impulse...
ACCx3: 80% tohit
no mods: 64.5% tohit
This is all based off of the various Jedi Counsel posts and the STOked spreadsheet.
I have noticed in other threads that people are looking at the Accuracy Overflow in a different manner than presented by the Jedi Counsel posts.
The 0.125 CrtH modifier per 0.1 difference in Acc/Def is treated as 1.25% in the Jedi posts. Some folks are treating it as 12.5% per 0.1... which I can see based on the wording of the explanation where the 0.125 is said to be treated as a %. However, in the examples given  it's treated as 1.25% and not 12.5%.
edit: Don't forget to subtract the 1 from the Diff Positive Box for the actual Accuracy Overflow.
So say we go with no skills/traits/gear other than the weapon mod  so we've got 100% Accuracy and 85% Defense (not to be confused with Bonus Accuracy/Defense)...
With it being 1.6% CrtH and 6.52% CrtD on ACCx3:
+3.88% CrtH
+15.5% CrtD
With it being 16.3% CrtH and 65.2% CrtD on ACCx3:
+38.8% CrtH
+155% CrtD
Were it the latter, though, there would be absolutely no reason ever to use CrtH/CrtD weapons...so it follows, imho, that the example given by the Jedi Counsel was correct and the explanation earlier in that was most likely misread by some.
edit: Thanks to pokersmith1 for pointing out where I was carrying a 1 in rushing that I should have  so I've adjusted the math.
