I'm using the OS as a reference point since I've heard them on multiple occasions including in my room.
A setup that has more authority down low and louder in the same freq as an OS would be unreal and yeah you should have that setup for a very long time.
I've just begun trying to mix the two, and it's tricky. I'm getting there though.
From 30hz on up, I think the Othorn and OS are pretty close. I can't say which is better since only one OS was at the meet.
However, having played just one Ghorn quite a bit then going directly to one OS in my room, by the time you get down to 15-17hz, it's more like a 4-to-1 ratio. Meaning at 15hz I'd wager that one Ghorn has as much or more output than 4 orbit shifters. Sounds insane, but I had them both right there in my room, and we pushed the OS to it's absolute limits. To put it into perspective, one Ghorn had more SPL at 15-25hz than all four of my sealed 5400's powered by a pair of clones...
