An FR graph would be nice. 35 Hz isn't that low and -6dB isn't insignificant.
I don't know if that means it's relatively flat with -6dB at 35 Hz but you're not going to get much more than that out of an 8" sealed sub. To be fair, if those numbers are based on anechoic chamber measurements, you should be able to get better performance in a small room. Either way, you should expect compromises in a sub of this size. Unfortunately, there's no way around physics.
I won't argue the physics, specs just look (intentionally?) vague. No further detail on their site either.
TLDR: you arent missing much (if anything) below 35Hz. 35Hz is really really low, and while *some* instruments (pipe organs, etc) are capable of producing sub-35Hz frequencies, i challenge you to find a recording with any real musical content below that frequency. even dance music with synthetic sine wave sub bass rarely dips below 30Hz, most of the sub information is around 50-80Hz. furthermore, you would need a much larger driver to produce anything that lower than 35Hz. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Also remember that the frequency response doesn't go down to 35hz and stop. It gradually rolls off or fades below the rated low end frequency.
