adjust your EQ settings.

I personally don't like Elixir strings. I bought one pack the B string broke while tuning and they felt funny because of the coating.

Is this about the amp-lified or the acoustic sound?

I'm surprised that you find the acoustic sound of an APX too bassy. I'm not a fan of elixirs, but if you are referring to the acoustic sound, they may help, because to my ear they have a bright "stringy" tone that might offset the bass.

If you are referring to the amplified sound, adjust the EG as Rob suggests.
