    are you hearing clipping or just seeing the light?
    are you using the comp on the flightcase?
    do you have fresh batteries in your bass?
    (this thread should probably be in amps)

    +1 to all of those points/questions. As long as you're just seeing the light flash and not hearing any distortion, it's fine. Also if you flip the input switch to "active" and you turn the input gain down, you should be able to avoid any overload. PLus, you mentioned it only happens while slapping- that tells me your peak levels while slapping are out of control. The best ways to fix that IMO are:
    1) work on your technique until your peak levels when slapping are not much higher than your peaks with fingerstyle.
    2) get a stomp compressor and only kick it on when you start slapping.
