I'm sure some of it is setup, but I've found that even Chromes flatwounds are giving me too much mwahhh. My bass is a fretless warwick corvette. I'm looking for a deep low/low-mid kinda string. Some scooped mids and lack of high-end. I've tried chromes and they're alright but I can find better. Also tried Labella Nylon Tapewounds, and couldn't stand those strings. Too much mwah, bridge-cable thickness and high tension.
