Default Where is the Dallas II

I've got a pair of FE206E's sitting here, but I can't seem to find the plans for the Dallas II. Does anybody have them available?

Thanks

Check out the fullrangedriver.com forum. Ron, the designer, often resides there. Much discussion with regards to his horns.

My Dallas is taking me forever to build. I still need to make and glue back braces and fill voids with kitty litter before I can button them up. I'm sort of second guessing myself on using cat5 for speaker wire.
Ron is amazing, he has 4 designs as far as I know. His original 3', the 4' Dallas II, the Austin - 48"x9" for the 166E and a special design he calls the Houston. I wish I could build them all

a tidy speaker starts with Tidy Cats. I used one cat5 for each terminal and ran the binding posts to the back. I caulked the inside seams with PolySeamSeal. I used yellow wood glue to attach the right side. Clamped it and turned 180 to avoid glue runs.
I listened for the first time tonight. I've never heard a speaker with this much detail before. The bass is defined and fast.

Someday soon I'm going to build a test mike and preamp and then I could give you a number for my room. As it is I would guess low to mid 40Hz.
It's the quality of the bass thats blowing me away. An oboe sounds like an oboe. A electric bass has attack and decay. A kick drum has punch. And this is with a un-modded 206E and a mass market amp. After I build the Mauro chip amp and Planet10 the driver things could get scary.

I believe Ron usually says around 50 hz. Room gain does help.

Squalor, looks great! Glad you're enjoying it!
