The 25Hz unit was originally designed for Tearalong. Stephen uses an octave pedal in his effects chain which he worked out to give a frequency of approximately 26Hz, at the lowest.
Dave (aka BobbyBDazzler) has recommended that all units should be made 25Hz, to give good headroom for detuning and 5/6 strings etc. Even though a 5/6 string sits at around 30Hz, as you mentioned, giving a little more room down to 25Hz should avoid minor signal losses but still protect the speaker.
I would definitely go for the 25Hz unit.
OK, sounds good to me, make mine a 25Hz then also please
