I have never listened to a subwoofer system that did satisfy my taste

I suspect that the subwoofer anyway only will transmit low frequencies,
but as Fons pointed out, I suspect that many systems I heard were that
bad, perhaps because they missed to filter out the bass for the mid/hi
speakers correctly.

JFTR when mixing everything to mono, IOW also for the mid/hi speakers,
than the OP might not miss the HiHat that is more to one side than to
the other, but it could happen that some effects, vocals and other
signals will be completely eliminated, especially if the OP does listen
to simple popular music, usually made by DJs. Some of those "engineers"
use out of phase effects to spread the stereo impression.
