No. The DWMs will not give you 20.7 quality bass, nor extension. Nor would they match a Tympani IVa. What they will do is provide audible extension below the resonance freq.

As Roger noted planars don't actually "pressurize" a room the way a sealed dynamic speaker would, but given sufficient power you can get deep powerful impactful tight and dynamic bass. The bigger the speaker and the more DWMs the more bass output and extension you get.

If you want big planar bass cheap then build a frame to take a stack of used MMGs - take their buttons out and bypass/disconnect the tweeters 4 or 5 MMGs per side stacked sideways should give you more bass than you can imagine. Same if you do this with a stack of DWMs just that it is a more costly option.
