Rolling off bass freq. on Bass tracks

I usually do two tracks when i record bass. One of my Countryman DI and the other is mic'd. I am well aware that my monitors are SERIOUSLY lacking in anything under 150hz (Event PS8s) so I have a hard time getting bass to translate well. What I am finding is that almost always I have to roll off all bass below 150-250hz on bass and sometimes bass drum tracks. Even the DI tracks. Is this common? I don't remember having to do it so much on 2" 24 track tape with a Neotek Elan board. I just have a small Soundtracs board going to PC. Any insight? It's no problem because I can get my mixes sounding just fine but I'm just curious. Thanks
