I would say the 5 segment is about the same as the 4 segment, both EE. My computer didn't access the calculator for some reason, probably operator error.

John, my friend, there's no need to guess at the answer, that's what the calculator's for!
For the 5-segment SRB, try using 3,600,000 lbf of thrust and a burn time of 120 seconds.
I'll email you the .xls file.
