Do the numbers on the Titlest golf balls still relate to compression rating.  Long ago the red numbers indicated a 90 compression ball and the black meant 100 compression ball.  Is this still true for the ProV1 and ProV1x balls?

No, this is not true.  The numbers are just another way, besides the side stamp, to identify the difference between a Pro V1 and Pro V1x.  The other way they differ is the dimple pattern.  

In fact, I believe it is now the opposite.  I believe the 1x is around 100 and the V1 is between 80-90..

Great question, actually they no longer mean compression but just represent on the ProV1 different models of golf balls.

Multi-layered balls are so different in construction than the 90/100 compression balls that the compression designation wouldn't convey meaningful information anymore. Other than the low-end 2 piece distance balls, there may not be any 100 compression balls even available. The differences between the -V1 and the -V1x are least attributable to compression. 3-piece/4-piece and dimple design are the major differences.
