I found this picture so that is all you would need to accurately build the speaker.

these are the problems I was having with the Dallas II plans, and the main reason why i abandoned the idea of trying to use it, too much guess work for someone who isn't very proficient at all with horns or cabinet design in the first place.

I will proper finish the project into CAD and arrange the bad angles (IF they are bad and it wasn't a mistake on my behalf) and then post the whole project (individual pieces with angles).The good part is that all pieces are 18mm thick and 280mm width (minus the side panels but those are easy). So all that's needed are the lenght and angles. It isn't the easiest but I read that it is very rewarding. I cannot find another project for fe206eN given my room size with proper bass. The Kirishima is too big for what I need so I'm left with this design. As I recall Dallas II is for fe206e and I have fe206en. I wonder if it would work the same...

Trileru,

IIRC diyAudio member Puffin built the FE208E Sigma cabinet and installed FE206en and got good results in his room (10' x 11' or slightly larger)... not a particularly easy build though requiring five 8' x 4' boards and many pieces. All straight cuts - no angles, that's the good thing.

Dallas II looks nicer though, and people who've built them say that it performs very well.

I found the drawing. It needs some detailing before it can be posted as a pdf, but the angles i have done might be immediately useful.

Regarding the Dallas II plans: It seems that the thread is dead. I am waiting for the other shoe to drop. Dave, is there anything more to see? I really like what you've done with the other drawings and I think they're enough to go on but if there's more, I'm more than eager to see.
