    Advice on a crescendo bc3500

    Whats up guys im somewhat new to the forum. Anyway I have a chance to get a crescnedo bc3500 amp tomorrow for 450$ and my current mtx thunder 81000 amp but I have heard mixed reviews on the amp. Just wondering if anybody has had experience with these amps or knows people that run them with no problems and could tell me a little about them. Im going to have a XS 3400 batt as my second batt and 3 runs of 0 gauge going to it with the big 3 so hopefully that is enough to keep my electrical up. for the time being its only going to be ran at 4 ohm on a phantom soundz 12 until I can afford an sp4 15. Any reviews you guys have on the amp would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance

    I've got a 3500D and it's sweet. Great looking and PHENOMENAL performing. For $450, if it's in good physical shape, and works as it should, that's a steal for that amp. I don't think you'd be disappointed.

    That's how it was for me except the guy had it for about a year. Seriously a great amp. I did a bunch of research before I bought mine and found nothing but good things about it.

    you should be fine at 4ohms. dropping it to 1 you may need electrical upgrades. 3 runs of 0/1 is a good start

    Re: Advice on a crescendo bc3500

    I have one and it's an excellent amp. I'm considering buying another to strap instead of selling my current one and picking up a ct7k. Also, I've never heard anyone talk bad about Crescendo amps. Everyone I know with one loves them and only ever sold to upgrade.

    Dude. Get a crescendo group 31 battery for the same price. Then you can run your nendo @ 1 or 2 ohms

    And I just got two 50 foot rolls of execution audio 0 gauge for $45 a roll
