How do I get this kick sound?

    http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=NNxXYTE8NDE it's crap quality but I'm looking to create this type of kick sound. And no, I don't want to trigger it I want to create it from scratch.

    So I guess to start with I go by tuning the heads really loose, then put a mic inside the kick close to the beater for click sound. But then what? A second mic outside the kick infront of the porthole? And then the tricky part, eq. It's very fat sounding so that's probably boosted around 80-100hz and lots of attack around 4k? But then what? Cut all mid between?

    Big bass drum. Sounds minimally detuned. Mic sounds like at the front. Minimal reverb. Possibly a trigger is blended in.
