 Which US-amp for my CDT setup?

I'm looking to buy two of amps to drive a CDT HD-1020 sub (400Watt RMS, 800 Watt Max) and the CDT ES-620 component set w/ M-519s upstage kit (I'm not really sure of the RMS for this combo). I've been told many different things, and I've settled with the USA-400 for the sub and the 600x for the components. If you could confirm that this would be the best match from the USamps lineup, I'd be highly appreciative.

Why do you want to send more power to your components than your sub?I would run 2 of the USA-600's.That would give you 600wrms to your sub and 75wrms to your components.Should sound pretty sweet.Or even a 600X to the components.But your sub should be able to handle that amp without any problems.Actually,you could just get the 5600X,and get all taken care of with one chassis.

Well, my logic is that the sub is RMS'd at 400W, and I'll run that at 2 ohms. That would be the USA-400, which is rated at 400x1 at 2 ohms (I hear they put out more than they're rated for anyway). For the speakers, I've decided now to go with the TU-600. It is rated at at 150Wx2 at 4 ohms, and the speakers want 180W. This is still a bit underpowered, but I emailed CDT, and they said it would be fine. Am I missing something, or is it just really odd that my speakers draw more power than my sub? edit: I could always just turn the gain down and get the USA-600 for the sub and the TU-600 for the frontstage, right?
