I do plan on cleaning things up, it was more functionality over looks until I set away time on weekend to clean up the install. I'll get 'er done!

You should swap your amps around - run the subs off of the 2channel bridged mono and then double bridge the 425 to 2ch for the comps. Same power to the subs but 4x as much to the comps

LoL! Thanks! Hmm, yes, the 2 channel amp can and will run the subs bridged mono the same as it is currently hooked up to the 4 channel.

So with the components to the 4 channel amp, bridge them left and right obviously? I'd have to run extra RCA to activate the 2nd channel on the 4 channel amp?

The comps on the 2 channel right now are fairly loud, but obviously under powered. It would make sense to switch them to the 4 channel amp as such. I could always try and see how it sounds.

Get a couple of RCA Y-cables. Channel 1&2 both get left and bridge for mono left and Channel 3&4 both get right and bridge for mono right. I run my midbass with a 4channel this way
