upgrade or sidegrade?

I'm currently running 2 4.150 PDX alpine amps, and a single 1.1000. the 1.1000 is a beast, i don't really use all 1000 watts, in fact I use if half of them at all, so power is no issue. the question is, is it worth the switch?? I mean i'll be making money on the switch since i can have the DPX1851 at 180-250$ and the 1.1000 might pull as much as 280-400$ and each 4.150 would do around 300 as well I think. I replaced the 2nd 4.150 with a 6 channel JL for all my lower wattage items like my tweeters and mid's and am putting the 180 watt amps on my mid woofers and some rear's that i'll have switched so I can compete with out them. but i just want something a little more cruise friendly for driving around, i mean who knows I might not like having rear's no more but worth a shot :p

I didn't like the 1.600 pdx. It got stupid loud, but didn't sound very good doing it. Never used the Clarion amps so I can't comment on them.

I've installed the Hx clarion amps several times. Work great. From my understanding the dpx amps are the same design just a different chassis.

My only complaint about the clarions amps are the silly "input sensitivity" toggles. Sure I know why they are there. But man, its just asking for trouble......
