    This. Remember the power you need to add to hear a volume difference. Get another AQ3500D while they are on sale, and you will be set man.

I'm just saying, it's all dumb, manufacturers should all get on the same fucking page. Give numbers for both 12V and 14.4V if that makes everyone happy. But don't make us as consumers fucking guess on what's actually going on.

    It's marketing, it's business, I understand that. And that's why it won't change. This was just a buzzed rant by me
    I hear ya, but you also have to take into account a lot of people, especially with newer cars with ELD's and all that dumb **** hardly charge IN the 14s, like the civic for example, it only charges over 14 when it senses that it needs it, AC being on, window being rolled down, etc..


    And then we have people who actually do charge at 14.4 where most amps are rated, but do they see 14.4 consistently? Nope.. And if they have a system in their car with anything short of STOUT electrical, they won't ever see 14.4 hardly.

    Then we have me, my DC xp keeps my sheit charged at 15.3 all day.

    I guess what I'm trying to get across, is even if they rated the all amps at 14.4, you're still gonna have people either not getting rated or getting more out of it because of whatever they charge at, electrical, etc..

    Re: 5k options ?

    Yea I would have batts to back it up amps going poof because if low voltage is kinda a myth tho fyi call dbr ask him how many a amps he's fixed due to low voltage . Most new amps including even hi fonics will run at 10v and will run hot and thermal protect . But yea I may do that aonly reason I said new amp is cause by the time I grt around and upgrade I won't be able to get a matching aq amp anymore they selling out of old stock now

    Yeah it does considering its internally regulated to charge at 15.3. Brand doesn't matter, but where it's regulated to charge at does


    Along with a ELD bypass that is

    I would hate that I wanna add one more Deka but my electrical is pretty stout, especially when driving. I really do love idling and having "voltage drop" into the 14s
