I just purchased 2 TC 3hp hybrids, and now need to buy components to back all that bass up. I was thinking of doing horns, ( Image Dynamics CD1Pro Minihorns ), but am afraid of doing a 3-way set up, and don't know how to install them. Could anybody suggest any components for under 400 that will keep up with the subs and sound good doing it>?

What size are those subs, and how much power will you be sending them? Critical mass comps with a high pass of 80hz or higher should handle around 400 watts a side. If you need more, one trick would be to add a set in the back on a delay or surround sound processor... with four, you should be able to pump up to 1,600 watts total to them. If that's not enough, you are probably looking at horns.

Pretty much any decent comps will keep up with those subs. Do you have them installed yet, if so are they "that" loud to where you think it will take some killer front stage to keep up?

My Germs kept up for the most part...some songs they would get kinda drowned out though. (I sold him the subs)....they are a bit louder than your average 3hps...they got MT softparts :D.
