Just doing a survey (out of boredom) of what you guys set the EQ on your amps to, and what do you consider your "dream" tone? I boost the lows and highs (more high than low though) and I cut all the midrange out, except for some high-mids and low-mids just to add definition (and NO I'm NOT trying to be like Fieldy! ) I just think to my ears midrange makes the bass sound "cheap" through the amp, makes it sound like the speaker's frazzled. My dream tone would probably be considered close to Rex Brown's sound (since I use a pick), strong lows to give massive punch when picking, but I like the high end cranked up to add clarity to the notes. Another person's tone I really like is Jason Newsted's, especially during the "Bass/Guitar Doodle" on the Cunning Stunts video.
