Default First FE206E enclosure

hey all this will be my first fostex speaker build. Now im in japan and found how cheap the fostex speakers are, and wanting to build one for ages i finally got around to buying a pair. So i checked these links:

Compendium of Fostex FE206E designs
Floor standing cabinet for FE207e+FT17H ?

Now im not sure about the enclosure, i wanna build something to too complex (i am good with wood tho) and get good range from the speakers, low and high. Im comtenplating the half Chang from what one of the threads mentions.

Also, im considering going 2-way with the 206e and a ft17h (since they are just over 30 bucks here). So what about an enclosure for that? Just add a small seperated box ontop? What about wiring thu to the main box, wouldnt that cause leakage? Also what about crossovers, any suggestions?

The other option ive heard is good for the 206 instead of a tweeter is phase plugs. Better off doing that? Where do i get em.

Thanks in advance

any advice on whether i should use tweeters or phase plugs? The tweeters are almost cheaper to buy (also free delivery). Also, how does the fostex recomended double bass reflex enclosure sound?
