    Where does that BS come from? Look at ALL the parts in an AQ amp and a DD amp, there is nothing superior quality in one versus the other when comparing the class D amps. As for the subs, they have a lower return ratio on the AQ line than they do on the DD line.

    This is a video I found on you tube comparing the M2A vs the 2200D. Apparently they use the same parts.

So far so good. I love the build quality, sound and feel of the amps. Once I looked at the bolted on RCAs and felt how heavy and well built the amp was i was sold. I opened them both up and like the guts but thought they looked very similiar to by old M2A amps. For the price, I am very impressed and hope to keep them long-term.

    Nothing like getting good audio equipment at those prices.

    Re: Audioque vs. Digital Designs

    Current DD and SQ/AQ amps most certainly do use different parts. As for this myth of us using "CHEAP" parts at Sound Qubed, it's just that a myth. For over 25 years I have been heavily tied to the 12 volt industry. I can tell you that without a doubt that SQ uses parts and supplies that meet or exceed the standards of every manufacturer that I have worked for. Like someone else said in this thread, Sound Qubed has nothing to hide!

    Re: Audioque vs. Digital Designs

    Last year, I changed from Alpine to Kenwood head units (big change), from using Audiocontrol 3.1 to AudioControl Matrix(big change), from ported to sealed (nice change) and swapped out my JL Audio slash amps to kicker to Audioque (very little to no change). The change of amps had very little to no effect on my systems. With that being said all I want in amp quality is one that will do rated power, has great build quality and gives me more power than I need. AQ fits the bill for me.

    Re: Audioque vs. Digital Designs

    I liked my HDC3 when I had it, I limited its performance because i was stupid and didn't replace my stock HU, but it still beat down the block on 1500w, only smelled coil maybe once when I was burping it (and clipping the signal to shit) for my own pleasure
