Getting some distortion due to some low end frequencies in several of my tracks on one of my systems at home. I do not have the same problem with commercial tracks and my monitors have no problems reproducing my mix downs.

The system is a 2.1 Bose. I think the problem is at the crossover point between sub and satellites (maybe around 300Hz?). The mixes are "warm" with with a good amount of content around 300Hz. The dynamics are under control also. If I cut here I can control the distortion but at a massive loss of warmth that I don't want to lose. Because the commercial tracks don't exhibit this problem it must be an issue with my mixes.

Any other ideas other than cutting precious warmth away? Is there a way I can retain perceived warmth while avoiding this problem?

EDIT: I have fixed most of the mixes by high-passing or cutting away at or above 300Hz. The resonance was just due to noob mixing.
