boominess is largely a function of the room and its modes. when you put a sub in a room, it will excite various frequencies and cancel others, so called peaks and nulls.
the peaks not only have a larger response in the frequency domain, but they also have a much longer decay in the time domain.
save for improperly designed subs, that is going to be the place to look for "boominess".
