Bassets are notoriously hard to toilet train, so you're lucky you have one that is easy. If the male is not castrated then castrating him may help as urinating is often linked with male dominance, as you suggested. You will need to start from the beginning with him and pretend he's a puppy. Confine him to a space where he can only urinate on his "toilet" (e.g. strip of grass, box with straw in) at night and can't get to any carpets. Once he is using this toilet you can try moving it towards the door, but don't get up at night to let him out. He may be doing this to get attention because he is jealous of the other dog. Once he is using this toilet then you can either make a doggy door or try to get him to sleep through. Feed him earlier in the evening and take away all food and water after that. Take them out last thing at night and then give him Rescue Remedy when he goes to bed. Still leave the toilet there in case. Take them out first thing in the morning and ignore any mistakes. Do this for at least a week and he should be able to hold it in.
