I recently fixed the surrounds on my Klipsch 4.1 after a long period of putting up w/ the rattle.
Everything sounds so much warmer, I had no idea it was such an easy fix.
I always liked the song.

If you come around
No more pain and no regrets
Watch the sun go brown
Smoking cobalt cigarets
There's no need to hide
Taking things the easy way
If I stay inside
I might live til Saturday

Hijacking my own thread. Looking for your favorite bass guitar that warms you.
Here's one of mine.

I still don’t know if I understand what you’re looking for here, but... I’m not much of a Beatles fan anymore, but if you play “I Want You (She’s So Heavy) from the Abbey Road album, on good stereo equipment or through headphones (neither of which were available to me back in the day) you’ll be blown away.

Favorite bass guitar tone? It doesn't get better than Jaco Pastorius:

That's ok. Thanks for the suggestion.
I was just looking for some relaxed shit, say, less "in your face" rock bass by Flea or Less Claypool.
When I google "warm sound" in relation to bass, I get "Warm is something of a catch-all positive term for the low-mids. A sound that is warm is pleasingly present in the low-mid area. Think like a nicely saturated bass on an old analog synth."
But I'm no expert.
But I know what I like. Miss Wilkenfeld does a good job.

That's what I'm talking about. I can feel that gently coming up through my computer desk.

IMO The bass on Boston's first 3 albums fits the definition of "warm" posted above, plus I find it interesting, with lots of semi-unpredictability to the playing. I find I often by default focus on the bass in their songs, even though every aspect of the playing and singing is great. All 3 of those albums are worth listening too all the way through.

Smokin' is predictable, but still excellent:

I don't care much for The Stones, but I love the bass in Miss You. It's my favorite song of theirs, and the below HD FLAC recording sounds really good, for youtube:
