In our previous paper math.QA/0409261, we defined a deformation of the group algebra of the group of even elements of a Coxeter group W, and showed that it is flat for all values of parameters if and only if all the rank 3 parabolic subgroups of W are infinite. In this paper, we study what happens in the general case. Then the deformation is flat only for some values of parameters, and the set of all such values is called the flatness locus. The main result of the paper is an explicit description of the this flatness locus as a scheme over Z. More specifically, we show that this scheme is the intersection of the flatness loci for the subalgebras corresponding to parabolic subgroups of rank 3. The latter are determined by solving the rigid multiplicative Deligne-Simpson problem. We also define additive analogs of our algebras and study their properties.
