Not looking for super quality, just better balance. FWIW, I have the same issue whether I use the mic in the Spire or two good quality condenser mics (small & large diaphragm). If I'm missing something please let me know. Other than this issue I positively LOVE my Spire!

If your recordings are too bass heavy, and you are not putting the mic in front of the sound hole . And this is true with both the Spire mic and outboard mics.?

Then the next suspect is likely bass buildup in the room.
Try closer mic'ing and less input signal say aprox. 6 or 8 inches
Try changing your recording position in the room
And also look into some Bass traps which you can buy pre made or DYI
