I'm gonna guess that your strings were hitting your pickups. If that's the case, just lower them a little until you don't hit them anymore. That's a fairly common problem when tuning that low on a regular guitar. If that's not the problem, you might be over exerting the speaker. To fix that, turn the volume down and lower the bass a bit.
