I think that will be a theme with all or most current KEF offerings: they trade-off extension of loudness. A bit of EQ can mitigate that in seconds.

True. Even the KEF Blade 1 isn't truly full range. As an engineering focused company, sacrificing some "full range performance" to gain some "with sub performance" makes sense, as adding subwoofers is always better(higher potential at least), even for speakers with 20Hz extension. Revel seems to have gone a similar direction with their new reference line.
