Hi Calvin!
You already have that via the .cfg files: in my .rockbox directory I
have a "Home.cfg" file with
bass boost: 0
loudness: 0
and a "Walk.cfg" file with
bass boost: 50
loudness: 9
to compensate the different response curves of my home system vs the
headset. On the same scheme you can add whatever parameters you think
appropriate and the only thing you will have to do is to play the right
.cfg whenever you connect your Jukebox to a different place.

Cheers. Jean.
