    Audioque vs. Digital Designs

    Hello All,

    What are the main differences between the Audioque amps and Digital Designs amps? They seem to be both very well built. Do they use the same quality of parts in the amps? I am only asking because I see that Audioque has a sale on their Audioque 2200D which looks very appealing to me? What would be the comparisons between the 2200D and M2C?

    Amps are made in the exact same place the subs are not. AQ is fully built in China where DD is assembled here in the US(in OKC).

    Audioque is good but, not as good as DD. DD has their amps rated at 12-12.7 volts and they do a lot over rated power. AQ will do rated and a little extra but, nothing special. DD uses superior parts and is the better choice if you have the dough.

    Re: Audioque vs. Digital Designs

    Aq is good product DD is better. Would it benefit you to spend the extra money on DD probably not. Unless you need the amp to be mint for a show car id suggest taking a peek at what the classifieds have that may work for you.

    AQ amp's will run using a little less strain on the alternator and its slightly cleaner less clipping at high'ish setting of gain. ^_^ ching chong knows how to build a robot that makes ****** amps, that's for sure

    Nope, all China. Only time they are assembled here is when they are out of stock.

    Both AQ and DD amps are made in Korea at the same place.

    Both AQ and DD amps are almost identical so no, that is not true.
