One way around that might be to house-rule that "explosive" really means Explosive 3, so you're dividing damage by yards rather than (yards x 3). Perhaps give that a try and see if it helps rectify things?
Thanks PK,
We discussed it and have decided to not allow regular external (x3) damage with AoE. Any "AoE" like effect (for Damage) will have to use explosive (x2). I think that will fix things nicely.

Thanks again,
