Using Mach 1000 Amp(s) in a Mach 460 System

Can I create a franken-system by using a amp (or multiple amps) from a Mach 1000 system in a Mustang that has a Mach 460 System?

Can I just have to fiddle with my EQ settings so I don't blow the speakers? Would that even be a concern since the Mach 1000 has four amps vs the 460 having two?

I'm asking because I think I can get a Mach 1000 amp(s) to replace my dead Mach 460 amp for cheap and I don't want to replace the speakers because that would mean work and / or money going into a car with 200,000 miles on it.

the amps from the mach 460 are the same as those in the 1000. The 460 has 2 amps, one on each side of the trunk, the 1000 has 6, the same two that the 460 has, as well as 4 on a rack that function only to power the trunk sub.

So if your not using the amp rack the other amps are the same.

Thank you very much. I suspected as much, but wasn't sure.
