Kick drum trigger and beater positioning

(I am new the drumming). Got myself a DM10 Studio Mesh Kit (probably the last in the world as those are now discontinued) and set it up. All is working fine, however ... I can barely hear the Kick Drum. - I set it up so that the beater is beating to the center of the drum pad.Then I noticed that the trigger is located near the bottom of the drum pad. I then shortened the beater so it kicks to a lower part of the drum, near the trigger. - I get a decent level now.My question: Is this normal to arrange beater to kick to the lower part of the drum near the trigger (or I should have done something else, or is it the trigger incorrectly positioned at the bottom of the pad)?Thanks!
