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.

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