I was seaching around for a good affordable 3-3500 watt amp and I looked at the crescendo amps. Now I heard good things about them but I heard somebody on here ranting about how they keep popping all their crescendo 2k's . Is this true? I would hope a new amp would not be prone to blowing up on me after a few months... any thoughts? or is that all misinformation.

I also looked at the AQ 3500 amps and was not sure on which one I will get. NOT TRYING TO BASH or start a VERSUS thread, Just want your thoughts on each amp from expereince. Im not sure on the price of the Crescendo 3500's yet as they just got back from SBN today.

Ive used a bc2000d for about 6 months now, best amp I've ever owned. They are built in the same build house as audioque amps. The price of the 3500d is 616 shipped :)

(3) 3500 amps? you don't have enough batteries run 3 amps and you will be running the risk of over heating your amps

You should be good with 1 aq3500 on 2 havocs with good electrical and a good box. Maybe talk to a AA rep about some possible upgrades to the subs. ( and you could have started your own thread instead of dumping in this one)

Ask them, you can let them know what your planning on running and they can let you know is there is anything availble as far as upgrades they may recomend

IIve never heard of something blow amps like that, ill bet you his setup is complete crap and also to the user saying the "price" shipped is wrong it depends on your location it wont be the same for everyone. Unless you are a dealer or sales rep please keep your "price"shipped and what you think it'll be for everyone quite as you do not know what your talking about. I love my bc 5500. And ive sold plenty of 2k'ssomething without one problem and a 3500dealer with out one bad report on the amp.

If you need prices and to order you can hit me up anytime
