"I would not dismiss TH for the "kick" range."

So what kind of slopes, crossover points, delay settings, and phasing are you using?

Ermm lr24 with the kicks running 60-125, I still gotta do the delay properly but by year it sounds nice 4ms behind the tops, as for phasing, i fully Dont understand it enough but im willing to learn if someone wants to make it easier for me to understand?

LR or BW 24 dB per octave in general, the delay times, crossover points and in band and out of band parametric EQ all vary with the type of top cabinets and sub cabinets used.
The alignment of a sealed front loaded top would be different than a horn loaded or ported top, all would require different settings to make a smooth phase transition.

Fortunately, DSP can save dozens of settings .
When I had a pile of FLH, BR, and TH subs for sale, I aligned each to the same top cabinet and would switch DSP settings for each.

If I forgot to switch settings when switching subs the results were not good..
