Mike,

I think ultimately it is a taste issue. Some people like a dominant bass presence and some do not. I am not sure where you taste lies but I found it helpful to reference my favorite songs in the studio as I am mixing with respect to the bass level and then see if my particular project can support such a level.

The second concern would be your monitoring environment. If this is inaccurate then its almost impossible to get the proper bass balance. Assuming that is close will make it easierr to get a handle on your own taste requiremnents
