    OK, I have near field monitors and head phones as my tools for mixing. For the most part I can get everything to sit well in the mix until I cut to CD and play my work on other systems.

    The problems is I do not know how the bass levels will turn up on other systems. Is there a rule of thumb that might help at setting bass levels using near field monitors.

    Yes, get some monitors that reveal the bass accurately (expensive) and be sure that your room is not accentuating or otherwise inaccurately reflecting your bass frequencies. You should probably check out the forum here on RO that talks about room acoustics. Good monitors and a good room is the number one thing you need to get mixes to translate accurately.

    I have gotten significantly improved results with the addition of a subwoofer. I recently added the Event S250 which sells for around $400 in the US. I feel that I am no longer in the dark on low frequencies ...

    Probably not a perfect solution but at that price I would recommend to try it out.
