    Crescendo vs Soundqubed

    So im looking for an amp to run my Sundown Zv3 15 of and have decided I want to give it somewhere around 2000 watts. I have these two in mind, the Crescendo Bd2000D or the Soundqubed Q1-2200d, which would be better? Or if you guys have any other suggestions? I would like to keep it under 500, and am perfectly fine with going used. Though i am not looking to buy now. Gotta save up first but wanted to see what options I had.

    I'd buy new. Either one of those will be sufficient. I think it's a toss up.

    Re: Crescendo vs Soundqubed

    Yea I kinda wanted to go buying something new, just cause if im spending that much I don't want something that might crap out on me and has no warranty. The Crescendo looks real nice. Anybody have one that could chime in?

    I like my bc3500 a lot, very efficient amp they can take a beating and put out very well. Cant speak for soundqubed but I've only heard good things about their amps.

    Re: Crescendo vs Soundqubed

    Im a big Soundqubed/Audioque fan. If It was me I would do the SQ2200. Ive had 5 AQ amps and loved them all. Don't think you can beat them for the price.

    $480 for the BC2000
    $430 for the SQ2200

    Crescendo FTW...I got a Crescendo Symphony 1500.1 pushing a Fi Q 12 and it's now where near broken in and it sounds rediculously clean and deep for a sealed box. ( a little over recommended ideal of 1.2 to now 1.4, I'll probably add some more bracing. Crescendo amps put out clean power and are a bit underrated. 1720 rms certified and 1860rms dynamic burst. You won't regret any of their amps, BC series are even better.

    Re: Crescendo vs Soundqubed

    I have 2 fi q 12, have bn searching for 2 good quality, efficient, inexpensive amps that will do rated for these bad boys. So far i've narrowed my choices down to symphony 1500, ct sounds 1400, saz 1500, or something in the rf line (not sure which model as they have several to choose from)..
    What do you guys think??
    Are you still running symphony 1500 on your fi q?
    Just how well do you like the symphony on your fi @ this point?
    Is it still giving your sub enough power?
    Or now that it is broken in, do you feel the need for a bigger amp with more head room?
    Also how well is it performing in a sealed box?
    My plans is to go with 1 amp per sub/sealed..
    Thanks in advance

    Sold To: Zedicus , Nate1017, Ram1500 , Oxsign , 310_cutty(twice), RoYALbLUE08, joelacer, Jeep2000

    Re: Crescendo vs Soundqubed

    Ive had an AQ2200 and a Crescendo BC2000. Both are great amps but the AQ2200 was the best amp I ever owned. I almost actually cried after I sold it. That wasnt so much the case withe the BC2000.



    All girls are whores, just ask your mom how you got here.

    Nice thread it's really about the power alot of normal joe's are using. Had the same question for my two Tantrics. Anyone care to throw in thoughts on the American Bass VFL amp I think it's the 120.

    Re: Crescendo vs Soundqubed

    The SoundQubed is right at that threshold of a great value price, before a drop in quality. So for the 2000ish watt range, they are very difficult to beat.

    I run my vfl 4480 full tilt all day @ 1ohm doing over rated power like a champ.

    It easily can handle .5 ohm like nothing.

    The 120.1 is a step above in hardware quality.



    My Setup: (Previous setup - 2 ohms doing 144db)
    Vehicle: 2000 GMC Sierra SLT 1500 3dr/5.3l Engine
    Headunit: Clarion CZ702 (Previous - DEH-P670MP)
    Front/Rear: Stock
    Sub Stage: SoundQubed HDC3 12" (Previous - DB Drive WDX 5K 12")
    Sub Amp: American Bass VFL Hybrid 4480.1D
    Amp Wiring: Knu KCA 0 Gauge, AudioTechnix 4 Gauge OFC, Rocksford 8 Gauge OFC, AudioTechnix RCA
    Big 3 Wiring: Execution Audio OFC 0 Gauge

    Re: Crescendo vs Soundqubed

    Whats up fellas
    what amps would you recommend for 2 fi q 12, 1500 rms going sealed!
    I have bn searching for 2 good quality, efficient, inexpensive amps, still not sure what to get.
    So far i've narrowed my choices down to symphony 1500, ct sounds 1400, saz 1500, sax 1200, rf t1000-1bdcp, rf t1500 1bdcp (I noticed they have several to choose from), arc xdi 1100.1
    Is any of these amps ideal? Or are there others I should tk a closer look at?
