How can I improve finger tapping? I can finger tap on the low E string and the A string but when ever I do it on the other strings, it's very quiet.

You need to treat tapping like any other legato; pull-offs need to flick away from the string and not just come straight away and hammer-ons need a decent amount of power behind them.

That can also have something to do with the way your bass is set up or your tone. Don't be afraid to boost the mids a bit

Not an answer, if you need a specific tone for something like this then you're not good enough at it.

This. To get the volume from a pull off, you have to flick your finger off so that it plucks the string. Just press down and pull your finger towards you. You should feel the string get pulled up ever so slightly as you do, then when you finger lets go, it causes the string to vibrate.
