    SAZ3500 v.1 or AQ3500.1d

    I am deciding between these two amps, and would like to know which one is more reliable/powerful.

    Are they both ok ran @.5 ohms, will one hold up longer?

    Do they both have zenon boards? (the AQ is the new dual input one, SAZ is v1)

    They are about the same price, AQ is BNIB and sundown looks like it was taken care of.

    Please help me decide, as I am the most indecisive person in the world.

    (Please no nut hugging, I just want facts)

    These responses are the opposite of what I expected... I expected sundown's nuts to get a good groping.

    Haha well im not 100% decided yet... still leaning towards a tc5200. Then once/if I blow it, I can make a new beast out of it to my specs.. I was big time considering hdc4s after seeing your video, but I heard that they are more spl subs and I am looking to annihilate the lows. They do look like sick subs tho.
