Default Silly question about kick drum depth

So im am in love with my 24'' kick drums... the feel, the sound, the look etc. The only thing I hate about them is how difficult they are to haul around if they arent really shallow (ie 14'' deep).

Now ive noticed that when a kick drum is shallow, to my ear, it seems to have less presence or "cut" through the mix/song almost like its "weak" sounding. Is that more down to how its mic'ed up, or does the shallow depth really make the drum less prominent because it has less boom. I really like to hear the kick drum in my music.

Im not sure if this makes sense but hopefully someone understands what I mean lol.
