Yes, but I can’t help myself , I am an ardent opponent of using a coil, glue, centering washer, diffuser and rubber rim at the bottom of the range, which certainly does not mate with the weightless electrostatic membrane and has an order of magnitude more distortion, especially at the bottom of the frequency range .Hi,
I admit to have difficulties to understand Your point.
I also agree on subwoofers in the way they are typically 'mated' with their satellite speakers.
Most subs I find are crossed over too high in frequency.
I disagree on Your general critique on Subs though.
Well executed a subwoofer improves the sound experience.
Moreover, I believe that electrostatic should be used primarily at the bottom of the range, and in medium and high registers you can use ordinary high-quality speakers with magnets and coils for the same reasons - the greatest amount of distortion occurs precisely at the bottom of the frequency range, where electrostatic can win qualitatively a speaker with a magnet and a coil.
By the way, you can make such an experiment and tell here on the basis of it.
