I very well could be that's just the way it is. There is common misconception that active basses are much louder or send out a stronger signal than passive basses. It's simply not true in all cases. I can tell you that my P basses are stronger than my active basses, and my 18v bass has the weakest signal of them all.
If you find out that is true you can always grab a DI with a level control on it.
Have you checked the pickup height?
