Have you looked at the Alesis Grip? I haven't played with one myself, but
in looking through the manual it seems to be a dedicated unit built solely
around the same sub-bass algorithm as the Akira. It does have quite a bit
more controllability, however. Might be worth checking out if you're not
so crazy about dedicating your Akira plus one of your compressors solely
managing your bass frequencies.
