they usualy mix on a number of speakers and check it at different levels, and the good mixers can make it sound good on any speaker at any level, the problem is producers that want it to jump out of your radio.. sorry way of topic and time to stop.

just use "winisd pro" to tune speaker box with bump in 100hz.
those plastic boomboxes have very fatiguing sound.
they may impress with their sound at first, but you can't listen to them for prolonged time.

A circuit was published in Everyday Electronics circa 25 years ago, IIRC (which is doubtful at my age...).

They used a trick to fool the brain into thinking the bass note was there when it wasn't. They added second and third harmonic distortion, then removed the fundamental. The brain heard the second and third and filled the fundamental back in for you.

So: 50Hz becomes 100Hz and 150Hz, the only time you would hear those frequencies together would be when the original 50Hz was present.

Now I have no idea whether they use this technique these days or not...
