To me it is important not to cut tomuch of the low mid.

Usualy I like cut away the mids, but I try to have a gentle roll off from lets say 90Hz to 160Hz.
That way you will hear it in cheapo speakers.

Then I look for a bump at 50-80Hz.

Also like having a peak at 1-2kHz rather then 3-5kHz. In the first it sounds unusual but it mix well with the guitars and the vocals.

I like a mic that could capture the air of the kick.
Sometimes the bottom snare mic or a PZM, the room mic, overheads... what ever.
It is not the lowend its something in the 2-4kHz area that makes the kick hugh.
