Don't know the gentleman, but it's a common practice when mastering.

A fun effect is when one's added harmonics to the bass a bit up in the midrange, because these are more directional and can contribute a bit to the stereo width.

But mono-izing the bass up to 80-90Hz it's fairly standard at least when there's music and not sound design. For one, it would be odd to have a completely different rendition in headphones than on loudspeakers.

Oh, I didn't know it was that common. Harmonics alone won't create an stereo effect, right? They should be some kind of stereo effect, like modulation or a space-effect?
