Samsung Galaxy S2 - Virgin Mobile - Android 4.2 - Wild the Night ROM (CWM10.2?)

Whenever I play a song in PowerAmp and there is a soft part it will go completely silent until the louder parts come in. For example, David Bowie's Space Oddity starts off very very quiet with a guitar but when I'm playing it in Android the song starts "playing" like 30 seconds in when David Bowie starts to sing. I believe this isn't a PowerAmp issue as it's doing the same thing in the music app Apollo, on multiple different songs as well.

I've endlessly tried Googling and cannot find the answer. I've checked through all of the Gapless settings in PowerAmp and those are off, even though I don't think it's a PowerAmp issue. Any advice would be appreciated!

I've reformatted pretty much everything and started from scratch with a fresh install of the ROM and it still does it. The lower the volume you use the more "soft" parts get cut off. If you put the volume on full blast it doesn't cut out, I assume because it's picking up the low parts better or something. So it's either something with Cyanogenmod or the ROM itself.
