Riser to improve sound?

Hey all...

So my new drum room at the new house isn't sounding so hot. The floor is concrete (like the old one) but I'm only using a thin layer of carpeting. The old room had a very thick layer of carpet padding in addition to the (same) carpet.

I can tune my kick up in the house (suspended wood floor) and it sounds great. I can carry it right out to the room and the bottom-end just disappears. Strangely, the toms sound great (and mostly the same) in either room. I have to believe that the floor is killing the tone of the kick drum...am I right?
