Those aren't thumbs, they are full-screen snapshots.

They are downloadble from the posts. I need to do some more work before i can put it into a pdf.

Thanks Dave

for some reason I've had trouble downloading them and resizing them. They want to print really small. Perhaps I can wait for the PDF's.

What browser are you using?

If you do control-clik (or tight clik on a PeeCee) you should be able to download the link. Or open the link in a new window.

Thanks Dave for all the Dallas II drawings.

Is anybody building either speaker in this thread? It would be great to see some new build pics.

I have been modding the 206en's with felt and stiffening the basket. I like the phase guides from Steve Deckert...does anyone have opinion/experience with these?
Any other mods people have been trying?

Totalcomfort, those Kirishimas look nice. I like the two-tone stain. Are those Cat-5 speaker wires? From the pictures they look short (compared to the doorframe). As others have pointed out, it may be hundreds of hours until they break in. Let us know your impressions.

Thanks I thought they turned out pretty good.
Speaker wire is standard white zip wire routed under carpet.
They do seem to sound a little better each time I play them,this my first pair of full range I have ever had.Compaired to my cornscala's they sound different,not better but not worse just different.I am still in the WOW!! stage with them and going to give myself some time before making final judgement.In love with them at this point!!

Ok, I still can't decide which of these to build. Both are acceptable for my room...I can sit minimum 12ft away. The build of the Dallas doesn't scare me at all. Like others, I'd like to extract the most bass. Has anyone built both? At the moment I'm enjoying my metronomes with a fleawatt amp with really holographic sound staging and what I'd like to achieve is an efficient (for the amp) speaker with similar but larger soundstage.

Totalcomfort, how's the bass out of the Kirishimas? Soundstage? I think Dave from P10 said they throw a really big soundstage. If you especially like Jazz or classical, I'd really like to hear some details.

...just want to keep the comparative critique going

Wanting to keep this thread rolling along as I am awaiting some second hand fe208e's and assume the Dallas II would be the best design to extract the most out of these drivers?

I think I have enough info from the previous posts to do a draft 3d design and the cut out sheet.

May take me a couple of months to get the wood organised ,most likely marine ply.

Also with the outside top I might cover with a thin layer of ply wood that can bend and cover the angles so it looks round.
