Take a look at the J110 vs the J112, and the O12 to get an idea. The Jack won't give you the deep fundamental but it will give you the harmonics and octaves that are more discernible to the ear. I built and owned the predecessor Omni10.5 and found that I wanted more bass, so I think a J112 would be more suitable.

I was thinking the J112 would be the best compromise.
I am still mulling it over.

I also got to demo the Diamondboxx XL2, it is loud and clean but truthfully underwhelming in overall output.
I was expecting too much of it too it seems. Up close listening it sounds really clean but in SPL mode and at WAR volume it takes on a different note and doesn't have the volume level I expected, there is NO distortion up to that level though.

It seems that is possible to compete with it at a much reduced $.
The challenge is keeping the form factor small.
