Early Black Flag bass tone

Does anybody know how I could get a bass tone like this? It's called Wasted by Black Flag, BUT it's from their 'First Four Years' album with Keith Morris. It's just a good, rumbling, deep bass tone.

P Bass + Ampeg SVT cranked to 11.

Simple and effective. Punk as bits.

Having played in punk bands during that era, that's pretty much the standard bass tone for anyone of those bands, with the possible exception of the Dead Kennedys. Klaus Fluoride stands out for using a Fender Jazz instead of a Precision.
