Default i need advice on choosing a bass drum head

i have a ddrum dominion ash pocket kit w/ a 20 x 20 bass drum and i need to find a bass drum head that will still give me that really deep low end thump despite my bass drum being a little smaller. does anyone have any advice for a deep/thumpy sounding bass drum head? any advice will be great!

Remo Powerstroke 3 on both sides; clear batter and coated resonant. To get the powerful thump from a 20" kick, tune it a bit higher than you'd imagine tuning it. Slack heads won't quite cut it.

I think the Evans EMAD is what you want. I have played on the others and none compare to the EMAD.

PS3 batter, couple choices for the reso, ambassador, another ps3 or regulator from aquarian. Like was said you have to tune the ps3 up a little higher than you think but once you hit the sweet spot it booms! Just switched to one from an SK1 what a great difference in sound!
