Cut the mids, boost the low and high frequencies on your amp. I personnaly use a Trace Elliot SMX head with EQ presets on it. The n1 is just the best slap sound I've ever had. Get an active pick up bass (I personnaly use a Warwick thumb bass) and new strings (lighter gauge than usual). And work on your right hand technique. The sound may change a lot according to the way your thumb actually hits the string. Try different things.
