That was my point.
Would the bass from the subs be more musical, tighter, punchier, etc., if the subs are fed with the same exact high-end amps (like Bryston 28Bsst2s) that these speakers are being fed?
The $15K Focal Grande Utopia subwoofer is passive/unpowered, which allows you to use your own high-end amps.
I would like to see B&W offer a passive/unpowered subwoofer which would allow you to use your own high-end amps.
Again, imagine the dual 10" woofer bass cabinet of the 800D2. They are very musical, punchy, and tight, right? They are being fed with the likes of Classe and Rotel, etc.?
Now turn that dual 10" woofer bass cabinet of the 800D2 into a passive/unpowered subwoofer which would allow you to use amps from Classe, Rotel, etc.
I guess if I were a billionaire, I could just buy a bunch of 800D2 to use just as subwoofers. That would be eccentric.
