Strauss and Kirsch are passive, so you have to invest in a good amp too. For example: The Kirsch Audio SQ6 goes down to 38Hz. A similar product from Geithain regarding size etc. is the RL940 (40Hz). The Kirsch is around €3500,- a pair + 800,- (Kirsch-Amp) = 4300,- The RL940 is around 5358,- The smallest Strauss is around 5000,- + Amp.
