We consider Helmholtz problems with a perturbed wave speed, where the single-signed perturbation is governed by a parameter $z$. Both the wave speed and the perturbation are allowed to be discontinuous (modelling a penetrable obstacle). We show that, for any frequency, for most values of $z$, the solution operator is polynomially bounded in the frequency. This solution-operator bound is most interesting for Helmholtz problems with strong trapping; recall that here there exist a sequence of real frequencies, tending to infinity, through which the solution operator grows superalgebraically, with these frequencies often called $\textit{quasi-resonances}$. The result of this paper then shows that, at every quasi-resonance, the superalgebraic growth of the solution operator does not occur for most single-signed perturbations of the wave speed, i.e., quasi-resonances are unstable under most such perturbations.
