Do you have a youtube link to a song with a similar sound/tone?
Huge bass sound can be abit vague.

Huge? Octave and chorus and no treble/mids no "tone". That's a pure, huge bass sound. Or get a double bass.

when in doubt, adjust the truss rod.

You're really kinda vague, if you mean a really low, bass-y sound then this.

And as big a speaker as you can get, no less than a 15", preferably 18" or 20".

Do what I do/did a 200+ watts (need headroom) couple 15's, P bass and flat wounds. apply low mid boost (I usually go all the way to 10), flat or drop some treble 9-12, high mids at 12-3, and lows 12-3 as well. It's not a dub sound, but great for a really pounding sound that isn't clanky and modern.

Chorus and octaves work nice too, but small speakers and few of them give poor speaker distortion if you over do it with the lows.

I run two eighteens through 300 watts. Plenty of bass boost mids and treble flat. Bass wears flats and no treble. Have to tie down amp the thing moves so much. Also trying a detuned bass running BEAD tuning, sloppy flats. Chest thumping.

I run a australian made 300 watt Labsystem and a 55 tribute made by Seattle luthier Regenerate Guitar Works and the bead bass is a 1970's ibanez eb3 tricked up as a fretless.

My car has a huge bass sound, 2000w amp etc. sounds amazing for dubstep and sub drops.

Help us help you with this please.

Or, if you don't like the size of the 8x10, a 4x10 and a 1x15. I just finished my set up yesterday and it sounds great like that.

definitely get a Gibson/Epiphone Thunderbird or EB-0, 2, 3. And for speakers nothing under 15''. Perhaps an EQ pedal or rack mount.
