You can build the HCs w/ the FE206En (current product). I built a pair using the FE206e after hearing Bob Trancho's HC w/ FE206e. You can find the thread at:
Half Chang build

Since Scott designed the cabinet for the FE207e, you will need BSC to them them sound right. I used 1 mH air core inductor and 5 ohms Mills resistor. As Scott will tell you, you lose some low end w/ the FE206, but I found the bass quite satisfactory. And I think the FE206 doesn't need any help on the high end, while many folks feel the FE207 needs a bit of help from a super tweeter.

Cheers, Jim

Should do, as Jim suggests. The new GRS should also go in, with an alignment similar to the defunct Pioneer B20.
