This is an interesting thread in the sense that it's made me reflect on an implicit process...I deal with that implicit sense of boominess by doing things I can make explicit (verbalise) e.g. move the mic, cut at 80 Hz, etc. - this is all pretty current in neuroscience.

The implicit sense of boominess is the same as the theoretical 'qualia' e.g. the sense of 'yellowness' or the taste of melon: Qualia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Boominess is like qualia because although we can agree that it is an excess of particular frequencies we cannot precisely and objectively explain how we perceive it's quality compared to how others experience it.

I'm not a proponent of qualia but it does offer some explanation in this context.
