Positioning Drum Room Mics

I have a great sounding studio drum kit (Ayotte/Paiste) and a great sounding wood/concrete/carpet room that measures approximately 20'x22'x11' high with a vaulted ceiling. It's professionally spec'd and acoustically treated (bass traps, dimensions, etc.) I know it's not large by drum room standards, but it sounds large and powerful. However, I've never been able to translate the power of the room sound to "tape" (PT Mix +). The drums are usually along the long wall. I often place the OVHs like RecorderMan suggested with additional snare, kick, and hi-hat mics (love the blend!)
