    Re: DC 2.0 vs AQ 2200

    guys i dont want to get into a war over dc vs aq so im going to use a differnt example here .
    i deal with alot of blown amps and i will compare a dd m4a and a 500.1 both the drive cards on the amps are inrerchangable as are the center caps and fets, both are the same type of board same build house. my ddm4a needed a terroid on the audio side and one from an american bass was used for 1 month and the amp perfromed the same .
    im not saying which amp is best because its all about what flavor u like. dc,aq,sundown etc are all good amps

    At that price difference, I would get the AQ. Nothing wrong with the DC though.

    may be based on similar board designs for instance look at the crescendo 5500 and dc 5k same boards right? yep same parts right ? nope . theres a reason stuff costs more . made in the same buildhouse maybe similar design maybe same exact parts no

    heres the math: watts/10-alternator ampereage = how many amps you need
    example: AQ 2200= 2200 watts/10= 220amps-your alternator 105= 115 amps needed...but as mylows reminded me in another thread you still have to account for total amp draw from your car without system. also the 850 cca means nothing. the ???ah= amp hours. that is whats needed

    yea if you remember i also had both at one time for a short period .the layouts are simular ,but the parts are not ,which makes the difference ,dc uses the best parts available .i can say that the vfl did get a bit warm when running especially at 4 ohms bridged where the dc amp did not. same with my 500.1 amps ,they did get warm but never shut down.now my dc never got warm ever .

    Re: DC 2.0 vs AQ 2200

    Yup I almost got an Aq2200, but I got a deal on a 2.0 I could not pass up. Both are solid amps, so you can't go wrong. Whichever fits your budget better will serve you well.
