Big Bottom - a bit too big??


With all due respect to Spinal Tap and their classic song "Big Bottom," I need to ask you, dear blog readers, about a different kind of bottom:
 the bass frequencies on the music you download from here.

I keep noticing that after I do eq work on music files to bring out the bottom end on some of the music I share here, it often sounds too bass-heavy when I play the same music on my car stereo.

I usually do the eq and related work using ... (gasp, shock, horror!) Apple earbuds. As you might know, there's not much bass response in those things. So I must be adding too much on the bottom end, but I don't realize it until I play the music on a decent stereo.

ANYONE ELSE NOTICING THIS?
If so, leave a comment here, 
and I'll try to avoid this problem in future posts...

  1. Not sure. I usually tweak it myself after getting it in.

  2. Just listened to a little of the new Letch (BTW, Thanks, Rob!). Just speaking for myself and my system, but it's wayyyyyyy too heavy on the bass. Did a little bass reduction and after that, sounds great. That said, I'd leave the bass as is, in the future.
