Honestly I’m liking the Omegas better. I get a bit lower extension with them. Very close and I’d own another paid of Zu’s if I had to. These Omegas MSRP at $3200 so may not be a fair comparison to DW’S which are a crazy value.
Buy a sub for lower extension. LOL. Just kidding. I don't know what kind of amp you were using before with the ZU's but once I hooked them up in my two channel room to some real power and clean power, they seriously opened up, rewarded me and gave me GREAT bass. I am a sub guy, but was actually totally content with the bass that the DW's were delivering sans sub. Since then, my ZU's are back in my theater room right where they belong and dialed in. I will NEVER get rid of my ZU's. I love them. I am just blessed that I am able to enjoy different systems in my home.
You are correct, the DW's are a crazy value. They should be sold for a lot more, so it might be a closer comparison than you think.
But I am sure the new Omega's are SWEET! Super 8 XRS right? Louis does it right. There is a reason I am having him build my second pair of Omega custom speakers, I love his speakers! The only other company I have come back to for seconds was ZU. But man, you are making me want to try one of his other offerings. I had a pair of Omega 3XRS's a few years ago with the RS5 driver and really enjoyed them a lot! Fast forward to today, after a few different conversations with Louis and explaining what type of sound I am looking for out of my music and speakers, he once again suggested the RS5 drivers. But this time around, we are doing dual RS5 driver's per cabinet. Higher output and more midrange. But he said that because I am going to be using dual subs, and I like the lightning quick attack and transient response of the RS5 driver and the resolution, transparency and resolve it gives, that it's the perfect choice for me. I listen when he makes suggestions. LOL
Hopefully will have them in the next month or so. I am excited!
