Used SubPac S2 beats any subwoofer setup IMO. The amount of wattage you'd need for a comparable body sensation would leave you deaf. I can have that at 3AM without anyone noticing.

Doesn't address the lack of soundstage, also speakers just sound more natural as they don't need any compensation curve to sound correct. I tried EQing by ear, but no headphone sounds quite as neutral as a speaker can, atleast to me.

The bass produced by subwoofers also sounds better than headphone bass(has better separation from the rest of the music).

This is all just my opinion as with anything relating to preference. More power to you if you enjoy your setup.

I'd love to have a decent sounding speaker setup, but the room geometry and acoustics are terrible, I don't want my living room to look like a recording studio. Plus I doubt my SO would like constant music at body shaking volume. I spend hours every day just melting into my chair.

Understandable, that's why I love headphones. The usability and audio quality are a nice in-between speakers and IEMs.
