I enjoyed it too

FaitalPro HF100 is a very nice CD
smooth, sweet, and cheap
tho my experience is with the old one, new model looks it could be crossed quite low for its size
bought it from Lean

btw, I have revised my own similar project about a hundred times by now
but during this thread I have decided to start the project by building a big mono sub
and let the rest go on from there

and just fool around with that for a while

who knows, it might turn out so good that you will never be able to beat it, no matter what

I am repeating myself, but an extended Econowave type thing may do the trick. I.e. Build something just like the original Econowave project, plus a 18" (maybe even 15" can do) for sub 80 Hz duty. All in one big box (with internal dividers) so il will look, and perhaps perform like M1, a a fraction of the price...
look here for hint: Econowave Deluxe build

The last two years ive not used any other compression drivers, almost always the HF104
which is to my ears the best there is.
The HF100 is a faboulus driver and at the price i cant imagine it could be bettered.
Their SHT tractrix horn i also find very good and really cheap.

All Faital drivers ive seen and used has the highest build quality i ever encountered.

You should allways dissassemble to see how its made when new toys arrive, very often one can get them back in working order again.

The 15XL1400 is a very nice LF unit.

Compared to two 8" drivers in a fairly large rearloaded horn its quite imposing.

Kinoshita and Technics might also do the trick

This is what I've had on the drawing board for a while now. Hoping to get started on it early next year.

Four Omega 18 Pros in sealed enclosures, four Beta 10s, 10" DDS ENG-90 Pro waveguide and whatever compression driver I ultimately decide on.

Six foot tall silhouette for scale.
