Normal for heavier strings to sound hollow?

After playing these Curt Mangans (105-85-65-45) for a while now, they seem to have a noticeable bump in the low mids lending to a not-as-rich sound as I had with the stock lighter D'Addarios that came with the bass. :confused:


Is this a normal thing?


Haven't played them in a band setting yet so, I'm not totally giving up on them as they may cut in the mix. :idk:

Sure, I can dial out some of the lo-mids on the amp but, it still has a honk I'm not too crazy about.


They feel fine, save for the increased tension of which I'm not crazy about either. :(
