    I would get it if I were you. How much power does your amp put out? Those XL's can take a beating. Though my buddy did some testing and a direct swap with a Level 4 and an XL on 2k they didn't notice much gain

    What are you hoping to gain, what is the AQ not doing?

    define better, and why do you just "assume" it would be better? I run AQ's, but have built plenty of DC set ups for other people. Both are pretty solid subs IMO...
