Glad you're all down with OPP but would appreciate some specific suggestions akin to the DNA amps.  :)

Since your tops are powered, you may look into getting the powered TH118s. You're going to need an external processor either way.

The powered Danley subs come with 2 presets.

One is a low pass @80Hz and the other has no lowpass.

So you can use an external processor to put the low pass where you want it

I always suggest an external processor with powered speakers just to have better control.  But in some cases it is not necessary.

Powered TH118s are $2500 more apiece than passive.

The choice of amps would also kind of depend on the tops you decide to get. I know somebody here was using one QSC PLD4.5 a side, I think using 3 channels to power the TH118 and one channel for an SM80. That seemed like a pretty elegant arrangement to me.

For one pair of TH118 -

How would I fare powering each sub on its own XTI-4000 vs a single PLD 4.5?

I know it's not the right thing to do really, but what about a single CS 4080 HZ?

I would stay far away from the XTI4000 for subs. It doesn't have the power supply for any sustained bass notes. The XTI4002 was is better but still not great.

I've had really good results with the RMX series on subs. They're fairly inexpensive too.

You will be initially limited by your 20 amp situation.  Traditional iron amps won't work.  You need a modern design.

I have not used the IPR so I can't comment.  Maybe someone else can.

I have used lab.gruppen fp14000 on wall current in a demo situation very successfully for subs.  But that's a pro solution and priced accordingly.

The biggest thing is to use a decent quality amp and stay away from the cheap ones.

That being said-the IPR 7500 is a surprisingly good amplifier-especially for the price/weight.

Ales from ADR Audio?
Yes, that was it.  Thanks.

By mid range I meant that he didn't make large touring systems but didn't make MI stuff either.
