8030A with 5040 sub or 1092 ? Pros and Cons

As topic says, i need a sub for my setup in my home studio. Studio is not yet fully treated, but almost. Even now i feel like i am lacking some depth in my low end. So i decided to get a sub.
My room is 2.1m wide and 3.4 long. My desk is in front of a windon/door ( not so wide ). Back wall is a wardrobe and side walls are made of concrete. So a lot of basstraps and thick panels.
Now to the sub. Since the studio is very small, and it is in apartment, i can not go crazy with something big. I know that SPL of 5040 and 8030 is different, and i am never going to play THAT loud, i wonder if this would be enough ? And also, will 5040 give me ind of depth in low end i am looking for ?
When it comes to 1092, since it is a older model, will it work with 8030 and if so, what do i need to think about ?
And last but not least, pros and cons on both subs. Thank you

Hi,

5040 and F One are basically the same subwoofer, just a different model name. They are recommended to work with 6010, 8020, G One and G Two.

Recommended subwoofers for 8030 are 7050 and 7060. F Two can be used too because it has similar performance to the 7050.

5051 is a discontinued model which has been replaced by F Two.

7050 would be just way too much for my room. I read something here on forum about 5040 and 8030 so i'll give it a go. Thank you for your reply....
