There's lots of generic FX sample packs about try the ones from vengeance. Just pop 'em in where you think they'll fit best, to push them back further experiment with long reverbs and delays

Also you can't beat a simple LP filter with a 6 dB/oct slope to push things back in the mix.

If you have no idea what you're doing, strangers will not have either.

Define the problem and you will find a solution.
