Jerg do you think this affects sound quality negatively? I'm having a great time with the bass right now and I feel guilty for some reason, like I could be sacrificing clarity for bass fun.
Sure some bass EQ could work great, I would recommend that you make a compromise though, and make the bass elevation ~3 dB at the highest (around 100-150 Hz), and in the form of a gentle hump, could roll it off toward midrange much faster than 1000 Hz, I'd say let it peter out by 500 Hz is more than enough. At the very low end, you could bump up a separate slope toward 20Hz by 3dB or so to really push out the bass extension.
Or just go crazy, and swap between the crazy bass EQ and no EQ for different music. I like to make a compromising EQ (like what I outlined above) that can be used to spice up the music without needing to revert to no EQ for reference though.
