the fe206esr showed up on my door step today from Madisound
what can i say but WOW!
Ive been listening to the 166ESR but these look like toys in comparison to the build quality of the fe206esr Hmm time to plug in the table saw!

Cool, mine arrived on Monday and I`ve increased my weight training so I can handle these. What cabinet are you building for them, so far the Fostex recommended horn looks like the way I`ll go. Ron`s Dallas horns really interest me, but in my shop, the Fostex will probably suit my woodworking skills best. Have you started breaking them in yet? Keep us posted of your progress.

Please don't talk about it. I'm broke and it'll depress me. ;)

Sorry Scottmoose, I`ll try to curb my enthusiasm, but it won`t be easy. I`m sure there is a pair with your name on it when you`re ready. I`m interested to see what somebody with your expreience and knowledge would do with them. Wish I was smart enough to experiment with them. I`ll just do what Fostex recommends.

Maybe this is something you could build. :smash:
They're not as huge as the recommended enclosure, you can mail the guy for the drawings.

Thanks JerryT for the input. My room can accomodate the Fostex cabinets and I`ve had good results with 5 of their designs that I`ve built so far. What I found most interseting was the mod, shorting the neg terminal to the driver`s frame. I will try this on hte regular Fe206e`s in the Fostex recommended BLH. Thanks again....someday I`m gonna be good at this.

I'm very interested in this driver, too.

I'm looking forward to see your results.
Some comparisons with 206E are surely welcome.
