Default getting power out of axis a longboards

i just bought a pair of axis a longboards and started setting them up to fit me. i got the feel down and love how it feels but, it just isn't loud enough. when i play i can't even hear the bass unless i'm playing bass alone. anyone have any suggestion to get more power out of it?

I found I had the same problems with my flying dragon direct drives. I've been plating at the bottom of the footboard, as well as keeping my foot off the pedal between strokes. Harder to do with more intricate stuff, but it works for me.

Could micing the kick be an option?

Very strange - I get plenty of level from my Axes - don't notice any difference to the Gibraltar 5000 (spare pedal). If you're playing faster it will probably be quieter no matter which pedal you use.

Have you changed something else? Is the beater closer to the skin?

No the only things I have changed are the spring tension and the beater angle which i moved back farther back. I changed the beaters and that didnt help either.

I have the trick pro 1 v, which is like an inch short of a long board. I dont have any trouble. I play heel up and also keep the beater pushed against the head between strokes
