Bass in a 2100 cubic foot room, Genelec 8260 + 7270

When watching Interstellar or other movies, sometimes the 8260 can't quite pull off enough bass and clips a little. Is a 12" subwoofer going to work in tandem with the 10" bass driver in the 8260, or is it going to take all the bass from them and do it on the subwoofer.

I'm not sure if there's a way to do it, but I'd like to have one 7270 subwoofer, maybe a second in a year due to the expensive markup in the US, but I'm not sure a single 12" driver can replace two 20" drivers.

Is there a chart for room sizes and subwoofers? I do get flat down to 18hz, but with deep notes I'm sure it's not playing at 113 dB on the 8260.
