The per­cep­tion of bass weight in mu­sic comes just as much from the area above the sub fre­quen­cies at 150-200Hz up­wards as it does from the sub weight be­low. This is be­cause be­ing able to clearly de­fine the first and sec­ond har­mon­ics of the bass as well as feel the sub fre­quen­cies gives a more weighty sound on a wider va­ri­ety of play­back sys­tems, in­clud­ing small speak­ers that lack nat­u­ral sub bass. To ex­ploit this in your own mixes, try us­ing a multiband pro­ces­sor to beef up your low-mid fre­quen­cies; a multiband sat­u­ra­tor like Au­dio Dam­age’s Kom­bi­nat Tri is a great choice for this job. If you’ve got some ear­buds handy, they make a great ref­er­ence tool when mix­ing low-mid bass.
