Every instrument, amp, DI, musician, recording, arrangement, and song is different. Bass guitar can't be generalized as much as something like a kick drum can, and even then there are obviously plenty of variables. I do find myself often shelving down lows and/or low mids on bass more than occasionally. It often sits in the track better and cures the boomies. It actually can feel more full and impactful with less junk down there. Other times, 100 works, sometimes 200 works, sometimes really low at 50 works. Often some mid- to upper mid-range adds articulation, and 300-600 usually sounds bad.
Sometimes low and/or high pass filters are useful, as is sometimes a distressor
with a little distortion to cut through a rock mix. An LA-2A on a Fender Jazz
is cool for a little old school funky tone, or one of my faves, a Gates sta-level. I'll often run from the Gates for a little color into the distressor
for some bite. This all just scratches the surface. Electric bass is incredibly unpredictable. An old Fender P-Bass with dead strings through an Ampeg sounds nothing like a new Music Man Stingray
through an SWR, and you can't use a one-size-fits-all approach. The song, style, and arrangement are really the biggest factors that influence your choices.
