Default library frgments size

I'm preparing a library using NEB ChIP-seq kit. I'm starting with ssDNA of 250-800nt, making it double stranded using Klenow and random primers and then using the kit. The size of the fragments that I get after the PCR amplification is around 400bp (that includes the 120bp addition of the adapters and primers). I tried to start the library preparation with dsDNA the same size (250-800bp) and got the same 400bp library, so I don't think that the Klenow step is the problem.
Do you have any ideas why do I have selection for the short fragments and how to overcome it (since it is very important to me that the final library will represents all lengths).
