Come to think of it, when I seated the head there was almost no cracking sound when I pushed down. I even went as far as to place my knee into the head and apply all my body weight... 195 lbs. worth.

That's an issue I'm having. If I get any loser on on the tension, the drum sounds terrible - like it's begging to be tighter. I can go about 1/8 to 1/4 turn higher and it sounds like I just shot up into the stratosphere.
