1238DF frequency range

1238DF frequency range

I am planning to upgrade from 1032C+7370 to one of the 3ways speakers (1237A, 1238A or 1238DF). I like most the 1238DF due to its compact size. Purpose is only private music listening (classic and jazz) and the room is about 200cubic meter (6mx10mx3,5m).

Only two reasons make me a bit worry about this slim model:

1. When running togehter with a subwoofer, what difference should I expect in terms of sound between the smaller but double 210mm bass driver of the 1238DF on the one hand in comparison the single but bigger bass woofers of the 1237A and the 1238A on the other hand or is ther non?

2. Why is the frequency range of the 1238DF limited to 20kHz whereas the two other models reach 22kHz?

Thanks in advance for all replies :)
