First of all I suggest you put your kick and other drum sounds on the same 
compressor. It may be a got idea to put your snare seperately because you're 
doing more of a rock sound. Secondly, get some rock samples. You can find these 
all over the net, or get a rock sample CD which can run about 25-45 bucks. 
Last, but definately not least, get the BBS Sonic Maximizer VST plugin for 
mastering. If you want to get out of the dryness that fruity tends to provide I 
highly recommend getting this tool.

If you've got all that working together, then your kick should sound fine. 
Remember try not to single out a sound unless you're specifically TRYING to do 
that. The key is blending everything together in sync and harmonically, then 
you'll see that the kick ends up sounding right no matter what you do. 

So the rundown:
1. Compress your beat on one compressor. Give or take the snare. 
2. Use the right samples (in your case, rock samples)
3. Master with the BBS Sonic Maximizer.

Hope that helps.
