Can you explain a little further? What do you mean by only take -1db?
I ment you do the loudness of the track in the mix by compressing single tracks a lot. So in the end you doesn't need more than -1dB or GR on your L2 whatever to get to convinient -10 or -9dB of RMS.

Choosing the right kick(s) for the bass is very important.

You could also place low pass filter @200Hz and be sure you can hear and feel the kick in the bass. Bass should be powerfull too. I'm not sure it needs to be -6dB quieter than kick, but -3dB for sure. However try to make bass and kick to be recognizable under lowpass even if they peak ~ at the same dB. And then lower the bass...
