First Question, Surround Mixing

The first question comes from Miles:

I would like to post a question regarding surround-sound mixing.

It seems one of the biggest mistakes or miscalculations surround sound mixers make is how to handle the low end; proper bass management.

I hear a lot of mixes with the bass rolled off heavily, or accentuated extensively. The mixer doesn't intend on those drastic differences but the mix reads so violently different from system to system (speaking of the low end only here!).

"Surround-Sound" systems are so common now amongst consumers that I wondered how mixers are achieving proper bass management in their mixes and what are some of the techniques used to check yourself?
