    AQ for sure if you have the cash, it's been tested and proven. The Crescendo isn't a bad amp by any means though. Probably another big batt in rear, since you have alt and batt up front already. And a voltage meter.

    Either way you wouldn't hear an audible difference between the two.

    in order to gain 3 dB's you need to at least double your power (in most cases). 3 dB's difference is the human ears threshold for a noticeable change, Also you'll probably hit power compression by then... reducing the actual amount of power going to your woofers.

    Older Yellowtops are good, but I wouldn't buy one new. They've had a bunch of QC issues that have been reported here and elsewhere.
