    Just finished a Dirty Little Secret build. Sounds good but too bassy, even with the bass control at zero. Output cap is 100nf (.1uf), if I swap that for a .01uf would it cut off some of the boomy lows? Would you start with that much of a change or something more subtle?

    Switching to a 10nF cap would move the cutoff from 6hz to 60hz so it might work but I would personally go for a 4n7F (4.7nF) which would place the cut off at 120hz
