How to make a big, full bass drum sound?

so Ive been trying for a while now to get one of those bass drums that makes everything else fade out for a split second. I know you have to use a compressor, but when i try, all i end up with is an ugly 'bwwoom' sound or a drum that isn't strong enough. Help anyone?

    Look for some tutorials on sidechain compression. There is a lot about it on the web. Besides that, it does take some practice to get it right. Good luck!
