Default Alesis DM5 trigger module problem...

I have the Alesis DM5 and I have a bit of a problem here. I have double pedals and when I strike the head using only one pedal there is no double triggering and I can go relatively fast without any problems. But when I try to do both pedals doing a single stroke roll, the trigger module doesn't even pick up the roll, unless I'm playing very very slowly. I know my rolls are clean because I hear it perfectly fine without the triggers in my ears. So I know it can't be my playing, and it must be a hardware problem. Now, I've literally adjusted just about every setting on the module (XTalk, Gain, Decay, etc.) and none of them helped the module pick up fast tempo rolls. I also checked to make sure the actual trigger was attached to the bass drum correctly and securely so now I'm completely stumped.

Sorry for the essay, please help!!

What trigger are you using?

Check the tuning of the head...generally to trigger a double pedal, I've found I need the batter head a little tigher than I prefer to prevent a double trigger (or in your case a no trigger).

My trigger is a DDrum pro bass drum trigger. The bass drum could be tighter, how tight is an ideal drum head suppose to be when using double pedals and triggers?
