I have considered the Magnepan DWM, but its frequency response only down to 40Hz. If not, it would be very ideal.
Yep, it isn't a subwoofer, more a woofer that can be used with smaller Maggies like the Mini Maggies or the home theater speakers, or to improve bass with a planar like the 30.7 in a large room (as the room size increases, you need more diaphragm area). The new Maggie woofers should mate brilliantly with a Quad, but they're also woofers rather than subwoofers so if you're going to run the Quad down to 40 Hz they wouldn't serve a purpose.
Now I understand. Rumour has it that a company called TBI made a subwoofer that is very low mass, and it should mate with the ESL perfectly.
The Linkwitz LX521 bass section LXsub4) might be the one to go for, this is because I have listened to the LX521 Reference not long ago, the tone of the deep bass should track the ESL-57.
Sadly, I cannot borrow the Linkwitz bass from the LX521 owner for trial :-(
I think it would be a good choice, though I saw someone complain once that the drivers in the LX-521 sound discontinuous. (To my frustration, I've never heard it myself.)
