    AQ3500 or Crescendo 3500?

    Hey everyone,

    In January ill be stepping up to a 3.5k and im wondering what you guys think of each of these amps, if you dont have experience with them please dont comment..

    from what ive seen the only difference is the AQ has dual power and ground, which is a plus for me, and Ive had 2 2200's. loved them both, just want your guys' opinions.

    thanks!

    I loved my AQ. I only got rid of it cause my wife was pregnant. I wish I would have kept it. Like cdc said the aq is more power also.
