I've only recently started to play around with my fx loop. I have a chorus and reverb in there and I've notice that they give me a noticeable volume boost when on. Loud enough that I don't even need to turn in my solo boost.

Is this normal for fx loops? Any tweaks that could fix this?

We need some more info on your setup like what amp. . .

Check the send / receive level on the FX loop if your amp has them and then the level/volume knobs on the pedals themselves. Just balance it all out for the proper (or no) volume change.

Maybe add a volume pedal or EQ pedal with a volume slider (my MXR 10 band has one) to the end of the loop then to readjust the volume before going to the power section.

And there appears to be no trimpots inside to adjust it either.
Perhaps a simpler device like this. Although an EQ, while more expensive will also allow you to tweak the tone. The Dano Fish N Chips is very good if you don't want to switch it on and off (they are an ergonomic nightmare).
