I think the point here may be that the low end reverb from an added reverb
circuit is an effect (like chorusing) and therefore is different than what
you might encounter in an expected playback area.
If you add enough LF reverb to make it sound muddy, it's certainly not going
to sound any better in the expected playback area even if there's a suck out
of LF in general. In that case, you'd have less LF, but it would still be
Years ago I ran into the term "CBS reverb", which was used a lot while
producing records for CBS. It seemed to imply rverb that had the bottom
rolled off and the top tipped up a bit, in order to keep it cleaner sounding.
