Bass is hard to control. Getting a speaker away from walls and corners can help tremendously, but if it's not possible, EQ systems can help. If a speaker sits against a wall and the bass is 10db louder than it should be, while the other frequencies are affected much less, Audyssey (or another EQ system) can help balance things out. The best thing to do is move the speaker away from the wall, but if that's not possible (as is the case with my RC-70), EQ can correct for the imbalance. It's not a perfect solution, but if I didn't have Audyssey, there's no way my system would sound as good as it does.
