Scenario:

FS has a on-axis frequency response of 30Hz-23khz and a LF cutoff of 28Hz.

Can i forego a subwoofer purchase if i do not have to worry about bass at even lower frequencies upto 20 Hz (human hearing limit)?

If its for movies, sub is essential and you would require to have a very good budget for subwoofer to hit 20hz or so. For music i would not really want to have a subwoofer as i feel it emphasises bass which i don't like much. 30hz for fs is good enough for your music purposes and would not recommend a sub if all you need is stereo
