I have a pair of TBI that I use. They are great subs for music but don't like LFE much, as you say.
Now, I have a complicated setup with some other subs to go lower/louder for movies and to smooth the bass. 3 different subs: an Outlaw Audio M8, an SVS SB1000 and then the TBI. There's no denying that using identical subs would have been easier.
I could integrate them well because I have a measurement mic and software (room eq wizard, aka REW) and an external DSP. I followed the Geddes method described here https://mehlau.net/audio/multisub_geddes/
It takes a long time but is well worth the effort.
