Maybe you need to consider a FAD Pandora Hope VI, ZMF x Vibro (with all ports open) or JVC DX1000 if you want more bass without losing the detail and sound stage.

Been done already, going by graphs and subjective listening he said it measured better than LCD-XC.

Edit : though in his translation to English I'm not sure now which can he was saying measured better 2 or XC.

"Based on measurements of LCD-XC - from instance to instance they is not coming out quite successfully. That low frequencies are lost, then the peaks emerge, then something else ..."

For nearfield listening, used English monitors with a 'BBC Dip' will have dipped uppermids that sound very LCD2 like, also known as 'Boston Bland' because Boston speakers in 80s also exhibited such characteristics.  For medium to far field I found big midwoofers taking care of 400hz and below to do the trick with lowmid resolution, I found 12/15 inch midwoofers to do the trick, 8 inches didn't cut it, not sure aif a 10inch midwoofer would be sufficient or not.  I have 6 different pairs of speakers to find answers to this exact question.

Maybe run it through a Headstage Arrow 3G? That would boost the bass I use one on my computer setup and now for portable use

BUT I am a basshead and I need more bass, if only it had more bass it would be perfect

now i was wondering is there a mod that can increase its bass, also is the lcd 2 rev2 the bassets among audeze, as i like to try others if they are more bassy

Very informative -- Thank you!! I think I do like that BBC Dip, it sounds nice and easy on the ears

I was thinking of seeing if Martin Custom Audio would do this mod for me.  Thoughts?

I'd much rather just get XCs than do that.

Those are beautiful!  Gotta love and appreciate such nice work.

While they look nice... why would you want to ruin a good thing? Slapping on wooden cups ≠ aural bliss.

I just did a low frequency sine test on my Audezes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bmoIiFxqRkI

 

I noticed a continuous decline in volume after 30hz. (I actually could hear all the way down to 16hz but had to turn the volume up) I'm concerned because I have the non-fazor with no roll off on my provided FR chart.

 

Do you think I have low frequency hearing loss??? Would someone mind testing this out on theirs as well?

are you sure that all the gear in your chain also has a perfectly flat response?  many components could have filtering to reduce frequencies below 30Hz anyway.  also the human ear doesn't hear all frequencies at the same volume.

human hearing fades quickly when going below 40Hz, and what one hear below 30Hz are mostly artifacts, noise and distortion which are actually at higher frequencies

 

and compressed audio from those online videos most probably don't go below 30Hz, use a audio signal generator software instead
