They really shouldn't be too much different (lest from my point of view). Even my multiply squat doesn't change much. Only thing I change is the width of my feet. I try to get down fast either way. That stuff is painful! haha
As far as the original question, Solider hit it pretty good I think. You don't have much arch, or your hams and gluts are not being loaded. Could also be an air issue. Normally if I am able to keep my air in the bottom of my gut I am much more explosive. If you get a chance to post a video let me know and I will give you my .02 for what its worth.
