Is running Running 150rms to focal 165 KP's per side too much power? I am using the channels 1&2 on a 450/4....

The RMS rating on them is 80... that's almost double, so I'd say yes.

Should I go up one step on the speakers or downgrade the amp to a 300/4?

You should be fine with that amp and comps. Just don't go crazy with the gains or EQ settings. IMO, I would rather have the extra headroom, putting less strain on the amp, than having an amp that has to run at it's full RMS power all the time.

Well I have blown the both crossovers, and blown 5 tweet's... Soo I don't know.. I think there was too much eq... The gain was not even up half way...
