I did a lot of driving around today, I kept the HU off and the amp on: it stays cool. So at the least i am actually pushing a lot of power to them, and possibly even clipping the amp. I have 8 gauge on it now, Im gonna have to change it to 0 gauge. 2nd, I disconnected the new set and just played the old. They started to break up a bit at my normal listening volume, not surprising as 1 pair @ 4 ohms gets much more power than 2 pair @ 2 ohms... but I changed both crossovers to 16K and it made a huge difference. So I think once I get the other tweet and swap it, leave them at 16k, and go to 0 gauge power wire they should at least be safe.
