My highs amp cut out when I turned it up into the higher volumes today. Couldn't find anything wrong with the wiring, and it was cool as could be. I put a dmm on to all four terminals and the one for my passenger side tweeter read 3 ohms.. The other tweeter and mids are reading four. Is this my problem with the amp? Time for new tweets?

yeah, kinda figured. I had a feeling I messed it up when I had the xover for it crossed to 3.1khz at-12db(I later set it to 3.55khz), with the amp now putting out full power after setting the gain with the dd-1. The gains almost twice as high now.

I know i did. I was able to set the crossovers down to 2.5 khz w/o a problem before the gain change, and I thought 3khz sounded perfect. I had my gains really low before using the dd1 and cc1, though. I didn't realize how much more I had in my amp, and I figured the tw25's would take 120 of clean power over 3khz. I forgot about the 12db slope, tho...

those tw-25s are great, i just had too much power going with too low of a xover point.

yep

I put up a wtb ad. Same goes for this as what i said about the mids. If no one offers anything nice for what I'm willing to pay, I'll be scoping out the refurb page at cdt and maybe poke around ebay. Then I'll hit you up to see what you can do before I buy.
