I have a friend who runs his 5ks daily strapped at half? You have the 5k that's badged d9s?

You should be able to ply with the enclosure size or port length to mess with impedance rise to get it to stay on . roll slower..

I personally have never used one. Just my eclipse deck. What's your enclosure setup like? Can you shrink it all all? Longer port should give more rise.. as well as shrinks the box.

I can't see any reason they won't do burps @.25 unless something else is protecting them

roll it extremely slow ill bet you are protecting from lack of volage drop meaning its retaining to much voltage and not enough ohm rise.

what batts are you using its hard to beleive those 5 k's arent dropping more voltage than that at .25 each amp

Is each amp seeing 2 volt line voltage!
I have used a pac. To roll set the deck high and roll the pac knob?

If your using areos then its easy to test a little longer port. Or if they are in the box.. bring them out and that will add some airspace.

But yea. Your voltage isn't dropping because they protect to soon. You could try un strapping them to. . But honestly at .25 per you should have zero issues.. since they play daily at .35 and even .25 in a friends car. Will they burp with just one amp?

Last thing.. is the deck and batteries sharing a ground?or are you running the amps on 16v and the deck off the car? Ground your 16v

If nothing is messed up then maybe you just have no rise at all.. did you try moving the box around so the ports were closer the the back? Or shutting the doors the mess with the rise?

try to test each amp seperately because one maybe causing the issue, and this is what males sence to me since your voltage is not dropping more than you say it is.
