You're still limited by coupling (to the floor), Gauger demonstrated that 30 years ago, started a revolution that resonated throughout the industry. When you de couple from the floor bottom end is increased and the full spectrum gains dynamic headroom.
Most drummers don't want full resonance anyway, hence the huge market for dampening devises, MOONGEL, rings, foam bits etc.
