Using a Custom EQ for sound and adding Bass makes the volume decrease

I've been using a Custom EQ for my headphones and it sounds great. But with the same EQ settings, my music goes from loud to unbearably low with Bluetooth and AUX as soon as the bass drops. I would need to turn off my EQ all together in order for the volume to stay the same. When will this be fixed? No other EQ on a smartphone does this. The volume level should always be the same

Is that an app that works specifically for this?

PowerAmp is a 3rd party music player...

 

It has more tweaks than normal built in music players.

I'm testing it out, but is there a way to get the EQ to work for Spotify or Play Music aside from my own music in my storage?
