Default Sonor Acrylic Bass Drum Head Advice

My boss has a 16x22 Sonor Acrylic Bass Drum and wants me to buy new heads for it and make it sound "awesome"

Right now im thinking PS3 clear/PS3 ebony or Coated Ambassador/smooth white ambassador.

I ran 22x16 Ludwig Vistalite kicks for "quite a few" years. Most always clear Pinstripe heads batter and clear Ambassador reso. (sometimes ported, sometimes not). Other batter heads would be Controlled Sound, Emperor, or Powerstroke 3. Just all depends on how "open" a sound you/he wants.

Acrylic kicks can sound quite 'slappy' - My recommendation would actually be a Superkick 1.
