What exactly do you mean testing bass?
Much of the bass you hear are the upper harmonics that have a lot to do with mids/highs and the crossover/phase integration.

Or are we talking about rumble?

Good luck listening to just a woofer or just a subwoofer. It will sound like mud.

My choice in bass is dual 15's run all the way up to 750hz, that setup has slam, like bass that hits you, and it can shake the walls also. It makes scary movies scarier, tactile impact bass, not just rumble. You feel the impact and rumble of an explosion. Much of the slam is also the fast clean leading edge of the notes coming out of the 1.4" compression driver also.

While fun, it doesn't hold a candle in the mids/highs to an 8" crossed to a round shallow horn crossed at 2khz. But that has more of a sub/sat sound due to lack of moving the air down below 200hz.

I like tron legacy, and most dance music from 10 years ago, I'm a sucker for the early now hits cd's.

Massive Attack - Mezzanine

The 35Hz centered dynamic wall-o-bass on "Angel" and the strong 17Hz sections on "Teardrop" have yet to fail in revealing weaknesses in my systems that will impact other somewhat less energetic music choices in more subtle ways.

Dean Peer has an album called Ucross. All fretless (I think) bass. The track Earth School is pretty amazing for dynamics and articulation. The tracks on the Sheffield Track Record (Amuseum and The Higher You Rise) are also pretty good.

One final offer: Boston Acoustics Bass Test CD, called the "Woofer Cooker".
That one is a really scary piece, use it on your your own responsibility......
