Here is the paragraph in that article. What do you guys think?:
"In all frankness, the tower’s next-to-lowest octaves can easily overwhelm things if you let them get away from you. My solution here was twofold. First, little by little, I made adjustments that took into account realistic low-bass levels. When you go to Symphony Hall to hear The Rite of Spring, you don’t get knocked over by the bass drum and contrabassoon; they’re simply there. (Put another way, just because you can make the floorboards move doesn’t mean you should, every time.) My second adjustment began with changing my hookup scheme by employing the line-level sub inputs and resetting my main channels to “small,” deliberately “underlapping” the crossover by setting my preamp’s subwoofer crossover to 60 Hz. Now I could adjust deep-bass levels via the “Subwoofer” channel-level key on my remote without leaving the comfort of my chair, while the slightly lower-fat diet I’d prescribed for the 50 Hz-120 Hz range helped eliminate the occasional midbass surplus. Perfect."
