I tune steel and nylon guitars very low (CGCFAC) and don't plug-in. The wobbly basses do get messy when played aggressively, though, I haven't noticed a disruptive rumble, which may be due to the standard guitar sizes that I use. An overly sensitive, larger body, scalloped braced steel string guitar, or the massive Bajo Sexto could be more likely to deal with that issue.

You could reduce bass string resonance by using a mixed set, the bass strings being of a higher tension than the trebles. La Bella 2001 series offers a mixed set.
