I mainly listen to rap, metal, and punk. When I first installed my SE, the rap bass was loud, but nothing exceptional. But the rock bass was very nice. Drums hit hard and deep. And when the double kick blast beats came the sub never missed a beat. Well I realized with my eq flat my volume was maxing out at 23/62. So I decided to put all the eq settings way into the negatives and just turn up the volume. The rap bass got way louder, but now there is something missing from the rock. I guess I will have to play with it some more. Unfortunately new midbass is out of the question at the moment. Makes me wish I only listend to one genre.
