    I'm afraid only you can decipher that. Every room and monitor system is different. You might wan to rent a real time anylizer and sweep your room to find out where the problems are.

    On the other hand, probably the best thing you can do right now without spending any money is get a commercial cd of a similar style that you're currently working on. Listen to it on your system and use that to gauge your mix. Regardless of the room or monitors, you will always have to "learn" your room and monitoring chain. This is true even in multimillion dollar studios. It's always good to start by listening.

    Keep in mind that a quality mastering job should address just this issue, i.e. making sure that your mixes translate on the widest variety of playback systems. That's one of the reasons why it's advisable to have your mixes mastered in a different listening environment than the one you mixed in. Any deficiencies in your room or monitoring reflected in your mix would also be an issue with your master.
