The stereo in question will provide reasonable playback of
professionally mastered music without having to turn the volume up very
much, even music that has decent dynamic range. Also, more importantly,
it will get the right EQ balance at low volume levels too. My suspicion
is that although one doesn't want to squash the peaks too much, there's
still something about my track that is just too spiky to engage the
woofers of some stereos until the volume is way up, whereas other songs
get decent bass/midrange/treble distribution right away without needing
to be so loud. So these spikes need to be squashed somewhat more than
they are, even if one can go overboard.

Now that I've determined it's not really an EQ problem, the trick is
figuring out do I need a multiband limiter, a multiband compressor, or
both, and what sort of settings will fix this. I can't figure out if I
love this process of investigation or hate it. :-/ It's certainly
intriguing.
