The first Karlson 12 aka "Karlsonette" which made its debut in fall of 1954, second K12 whose plan was published in the July 1954 issue of Popular Mechanics, and some guesstimate of the 3rd version of the 1960's are all in Greg B's folder along with SK8, XK8, a tested 28" tall slim K-coupler and more stuff - I have run FE206EN in SK8 and K12 plus should load it in my XK8 which is a high aspect Karlson-coupler. K12 kept its outside dimensions along the years but had subtle changes with baffle angle, and venting http://picasaweb.google./comgregmuon/STUPIDHIFITRICKS#

One box that hasn't been mentioned yet is Onur Illkorur's Singular -basically it's a folded constant cross section QW pipe with an internal Helmholtz resonator, presumably tuned to the 3rd or 5th harmonic (I haven't calculated it).

Not exactly a compact cabinet for what sounds a v. small room, but shoved back against a wall I suspect it will produce some respectable LF energy in that space.

has the intended venue changed from the original 100 ft^2 described in first post?

I have trouble imagining any of the larger enclosures that would no doubt work for the 206 fitting comfortably in that space and leaving room for even a single listener and bar stool

OK, I joke a bit - but the room is small, and might well be better served by a smaller driver

Assuming you don't want large boxes, you'd need a sub with the 206, so no difference there.

IMO, the most compact and simple to build system would be to put the 206's in small sealed enclosures, and add a pair of small subs to handle the bass and act as 'stands' for the Fostexes. I've done this with FE166E's and it worked pretty well. Pretty much the idea behind the Basszilla, or Bottlehead's SEXy design. In a 10 x 10 room the subs could be fairly small and still make adequate bass for music.

I heard the Singulars with those very expensive AER drivers, which worked rather nicely, but they sure are big for the room of the OP.

Preferably, i recommend to build something with smaller drivers dfor that room. Markaudio comes to mind.
but I believe that the 206ens are already bought, in that case Horst's compact Trumpet-sat which I linked above seems like a good way put when combined with an active sub.

I'd tend to agree, although I suspect I'm another one who would be more inclined to run the 206s sealed, albeit with woofers rather than subs, crossing at or just above the mass-corner.

Use the natural roll-off of a sealed box as the filter.
