Default Atlas mount: good and bad!

I have a Ludwig Legacy Classic with a 26, 14, 16, 18 setup. I added the atlas arch to the bass drum and it great. perfect positioning for the 14x10 rack tom over a 26x14 bass drum, love it!
the 14x10 has the atlas mount in place of one of the top lugs and it kills the sound of the drum, just does not resonate. if I pick the drum up, hold it by the hoop and strike it, it sings.
I'm wondering if the 14x10 3ply is just to heavy, or am I missing something here? I moved the drum up and down the L-arm to see id it made a difference but no. its just dead when its mounted.
bottom line= looks great, sounds like crap.
