I agree with you adason, though i must mention I only listen to music, so I set my bass flat.
I see at times people like what they call a house curve, usually some sort of rising bass response as you get lower. That is mainly at the shack, so I'm assuming more often than not that is a HT thing.

But for music, flat for me.

Yeah I tried the house curve thing - Makes action movies sound great in an overblown kind of way.

Music sounds terrible with one. Esp. double bass.

My subs are flat from 20Hz - 80Hz. A response like shown above (Adasons) sound bad on my system - no midbass weight and a tinny, harsh sound. Suprisingly a flat response sounds better with film soundtracks than music (on my system)

yeah, but that is not necessarily an in room response.

What is the response at the seating position?? If I had it flat at the listening position across all frequencies it would sound terribly bright and horrible.

Mine too are set flat at one meter on axis, and then the room 'takes over' as it where, the I do any needed additional room correction to fix the bass up and downs, and end up with the natural 'high end fall off'.
