This sound effect can be found on the Hanna-Barbera Sound Effects Library, which was made by Sound Ideas. It's basically a muffled version of the explosion from EXPLOSION - HOWITZER SHELL IN AND EXPLODE and EXPLOSION - LARGE BLAST 03, along with EXPLOSION - LARGE EXPLOSION from the 20th Century Fox Sound Effects Library. Originally a Universal sound effect.↵It's often used in Cinemassacre's Angry Video Game Nerd as its trademark explosion sound (along with 01) for anything that explodes.

This explosion is mostly associated with the Angry Video Game Nerd.
