Would you say this applies mostly to mixing? As in, get the mix right without aiming for loudness, and then let a mastering engineer deal with the problem of making a sub-bassy tune loud? I know that's the general advice anyway but I'm asking specifically about the problem of getting sub-bass loud.
Possibly a stupid question, but what are you monitoring the sub-bass with? If you don't have a wide-range, high power monitor system and a big room to allow those 35+ foot wavelengths some breathing space, hard to tell when you have enough sub-bass. Although, your next door neighbours might be able to tell you.
