You can't beat the Funk with WAF. If this was a dark HT setup I would "maybe" pick another but for an open area where everyone is going to see it. Funk is a work of art to add to your room.

My first question is what do you not like about the SW 700 S?
You will be moving from a around $800 sub to a ID $800 sub. Your gains might not be that great.

I'm not sure you can trust the high and low frequency charts from a cell phone mic but it's still a good tool.

What app did you use? I might compare it to REW.
