Bass actually has less apparent loudness to the human ear per the same

amount of decibel noise than treble or mid frequencies. There are bass frequencies that humans could barely hear if played the same exact volume as someone speaking with a normal mid-range pitched frequency. If there is some kind of legislation about audio decibels in commercials (I have no idea about that sort of thing), then adding more bass to the overall audio output would actually give you less "apparent loudness" bang for your buck. Sorry, I know that doesn't help your overall point about commercials much, just wanted to point out something about how sound works. :D
