In are audio club we call it bass ping. No boom and rumble. Just musical bass notes as they should be.  
Acoustic Curtain for listening area
I use the black out curtains in my listening room. I have them behind the speakers. Listening chair and side walls.

I ordered a SR purple outlet yesterday. It will be delivered by mid week. I have their purple fuses through out my gear. I'm using the Cardas outlet now. I'll post back with my review finds on the purple outlet.

That type of vintage gear the op has belongs in the garage only.

Nutty,, I gave up on the Furutech Rhodium gtx outlet. The bass was good but the high end was just to smeared and brittle. I have a pair of Nola ko speakers. They have 4 tweeters per speaker. I'm using a Cardas outlet now. It has been in use for 6 ... 
After the thrill is gone
