    ... on a pretty hefty sound system at a one-off in my city. For some reason, the sub missed completely, like it was almost not there. Played loads of other tunes, all with great sub response, but Back To U just didn't hit for some reason. Sounds fine on my reference monitors, though.

    Anyone experienced anything similar?

    :shabba:

    Still a great tune, btw :drums:

    i got the exact opposite the other day...
    played Doms Dynamo, and 2 bars into the intro, a huge subbass comes on and muds up the whole mix...
    but ya know, more is better than less, huh?
