Bass should not seem "localized" below 80hz.

Bass at 80hz or so and below should sound like what it actually is: Omni-directional bass. If bass below 80hz or so seems "localized", then you've got room problems or are in need of some adjustments, or both.

In the same vein, "stereo bass" typically begins above 80hz or so. If bass above 80hz or so does not seem stereophonic, there is something wrong too.

Whenever I speak of smooth, even bass over "a wide and tall listening window", I'm mostly referring to accurate sounding bass in the omni-directional range of bass (below 80z or so), without distinct peaks or troughs in the frequency response. When bass should not sound too omni-directional (but stereophonic instead) and "localized", I do want to hear that represented accurately too.
