a very handy list indeed to have lying around. Nice!

BTW: I'm currently building a pair of the first entry on your list :)

Bob's FB20 & LT2000 BR & MLTL designs respectively should be fine with the 206, with a couple of tweaks to their correction circuits or your active Eq settings.

Anyone willing to list/share mods being done on the FE206E.

I've build MJK's MLTL speaker and is very impressed with the driver but it has some quirks and limitations.

1. Phase plug (wooden egg from Hobby Lobby)
2. Metal bond on the basket frame.(covers the mag gap)
3. 99 cent tweak.

Still dosent perform as well as a 208 Sigma with a ribbon tweet.

Römer and Raffi Bauer have a horn design which can be used for the FE206E.
