Running them at 4 ohms would most likely be a little cleaner but running the amp at 1 ohm they seem to be faster, or is that all in my mind?

It seems that with the lack of resistance the speakers react faster. Like I say is this all in my head?

The speakers react as soon as the signal is driven into them.

to answer your original question, yes. it is done, but the work is not cheap. many times you can upgrade components to handle more current, but you need to be able to do this to the whole system. next, figure out how much power it can safely run, and lower the voltage accordingly to not exceed that. this is done via torroid re-work and often needed to have the ps controller circuit modified to react to that voltage. someone who can, and is willing to put in the work needs to decide if that amp is even worth the effort, or should be kept at higher ohm loads.
