Default Bass not working with new car stereo over Bluetooth.

Hello everyone, new to the forum, generic apology for just in case I'm posting this in the wrong section.

Anyways, I got a new stereo in my car, and I bought this particular one because the respectable individuals with slightly less than average intelligence at Best Buy (tl;dr idiots) told me that it would play music over Bluetooth with my Android phone. I pulled out of their garage after it was installed, parked, and started fiddling with it to see how everything works. Turns out there's no bass coming from my subwoofer when I play music over Bluetooth. Works fine over aux, but I'm not okay with using old technology when I payed extra to be able to use new technology. So has anyone ever heard of anything like this? I can't think of anything they could have messed up that would only turn off the sub when using Bluetooth.

Specs:
Samsung Galaxy S3 with CM10.0.0-d2att using Android version 4.1.2
Alpine CDE-133BT

I have heard some Bluetooth implementations on car radios turn off the subwoofer while its enabled. Granted, I've only heard of it happening while on voice call (which makes sense), I have no idea why that's happening using Bluetooth audio.

I'm assuming you've gone through all your car stereo settings and read the manual to find an option that may enable/disable the subwoofer while Bluetooth is on. Who knows, it could be a bug on the headunit as well that the manufacturer has to fix.

I would guess because the head unit can't differentiate between a phone call and music. It's just a Bluetooth audio stream.

Would have thought the should be a setting to turn off/on the subwoofer for BT audio. It's a bit bad if the isn't, poor design by the manufacturer.
