808 bass sample Help!......

Does anyone have an 808 bass sample they can post? I have tried to produce my own 808 sine bass sample. But i can never get it right. When i do they usually sound good on my montors but never on regular speakers. Another thing is that they never come though on regular speakers. I guessing that the freq. is to low for regular speakers to handle? Can anyone explain to me how to make an 808 sample the right way? The ones you hear in hip hop music or rock music to accent a big hit.

I do mine with my Electribe Emx1. It has a nice sine wave, and when you drop down a few octaves, you get that low rumble hip hop bass noise. They also have an 808 bass patch on there, but I prefer the regular sine wave more. Most speakers don't have the ability to produce the low bass rumble since more of it is felt than heard, and alot of what you are hearing is more of the room making noise as it rumbles, and less the actual bass noise. Small speakers would need a sub to produce this.
