Default Discharging

Guys.. I bring my packs down to 5.4 volts when I am done with them, using my 16x7 (30 amps). Now, If I stick the pack on my EQ tray, isn't that bringing the voltage down below .9 volts/cell?

I have an older (1999) Integy EQ tray, with 8 posts that squeeze the (+) and (-) terminals of the pack, with 6 tiny lightbulbs. There are also some resistors laid out and such. It says for "NiCad only" but this was purchased before NiMHs were released.

Should I EQ my pack after my 5.4 discharge? or only before charging? Wont these bulbs take the cells to 0 volts?
