Rating Greatest Monoblock Amplifier for the price!
 
Purchased this to wire 1-ohm to a single 10" HDS310 and am pushing 1,200 watts RMS to it, and have been for ~ 4 months. No problems whatsoever. Gain is set about 1/2 and you should see the look on my friends' faces when I show them I have a single 10" HDS310 in a custom built ported enclosure pushing this much power and frequency response. I will NEVER regret purchasing this amplifier. The included bass knob that I have set up in between my driver seat and center console (in a 2012 Camaro 2LT that came with the Boston Acoustics 9-speaker system) is one of my favorite additions. Anytime I want to stop banging and getting a back massage I can just turn the knob down to about 3/4 or 1/2 and still enjoy crisp and powerful bass from the HDS310. If your budget is anywhere from $500-$700 I recommend this amplifier with either a single 10" HDS310 or two HDS210s (trunk space of course being a deciding factor). SOUNDQUBED FTW! Anyone that also drives a Camaro (whether it's the LS, 1LT, or 2LT feel free to contact me via Twitter (@Lyrique501) or by e-mail (brandenacre@ymail.com) for further assistance. Camaros can be tricky and you may have to purchase an additional harness that plugs into the Boston Acoustics amp located in the trunk (BTW, the battery is also in the trunk, so the power, ground, and RCAs are all wired exclusively inside the trunk. Camaros are perfect for even an inexperienced car audio installer like myself.) Again, as I stated before... SOUNDQUBED FTW!!!

No more! No more searching for Affordable Quality.. its Here. Aside from boring design and backwards bass knob dial :/ this product is legit in every way. Efficiency, Sound Quality, Quality Built, Performance, True Power Rating, Temperature Control, versatility, ....Everything you want from a good quality Amplifier. I gotta give it to these guys.

I have two of these strapped to an HDC3 at one ohm final. Each are seeing .5 ohm and taking it..make sure you have good electrical because these things will get hot if you dont watch voltage. AWESOME amps!!!

Incredible amp, pushs 12 in sub at 1 ohm easily. I would definitively recommend calling, I had ordered a larger amp, staff called me to inquire about my system, made awesome recommendations, we couldn't be happier.

I love the design and simplicity of the amp and it really pushes my SDC2.5 15s! I like this amp alot. Only thing that would make it better would be if the SoundQubed logo lite up when it is on!

I love this amp, hardly gets warm even on full tilt. I also bought the HDS212 to go with it. I would highly recommend this amp. I upgraded my daily driver with this setup. Well worth the money I spent. The bass knob is perfect for when I'm at a stop light.

Man this amp really packs a punch. Very clean power and loud it really pushes my Arc 12 hard. I like that it has a clipping light on remote bass gain. When I ready for my next sub it will be from this company 4sure!

This amp is a beast!! I searched around a lot for a amp with a reasonable price that would push what I wanted it to and this is worth every penny! It puts out clean bass for long periods of time and doesn't miss a lick in the heat of the summer in 100 degree weather I can play for hours and it barely gets warm at all if your searching for a amp look no further than soundqubed they are right on top along with sundown at a much more reasonable price

Rating Tried and true!!! A++++
 
I've been buying products from this company for years, back to the times of AQ. Their monoblock lineup is tried and true, I've never been let down. They've won countless competitions and can really take abuse while giving you nothing but clean watts. I'll be getting a 3500.1 for my next SPL build :) Can't wait

I bought this guy to pair up with my HDC3 15. All I can say is wow. I have a video up on YouTube of it almost breaking my rear view mirror off in a 2000 maxima which I am running mine at .5 for now I'm buying three more of these soon to pair up with my other three 15's

Been using this with my HDC 3.0 15 @1 ohm double 8 gauge wires and she works just fine with gain about 1/3 up before the clip light comes on! Running 0GA power wire, to a 4GA converter and no problems at all. Gets a little hot but only when i push it hard.

Rating Amazing, solid amplifier. 3 years old!
 
I bought one of these a long time ago.. a long time. Received it 06/05/2010. 3 years ago.. It's been through 3 different owners, and a good friend of mine is using it now. It's been daily ran at 0.5 ohms since I got it, pushing 1 HDC3 12". 3 years later, it's still kickin and looks brand new with the old AQ logo. i need to buy another one and another HDC3 for my current ride. Maybe one day I'll get my old AQ stuff back. 143db's all day, no problem!

Rating Fantastic Amp
 
Freakin love this amp! Installed a week ago on my Sundown SA-12 DVC wired at 2ohm (sorry SQ guys, it was before I knew you were OKC boys), ported at 2 cubes 32hz and this amp is so clean and crisp. Been rebuilding my system a step at a time, and replaced my MTX tc4001 amp with this one and it is miles better. Hits super hard, and the quality is amazing compared to the old MTX. Although that was a decent amp, it was almost the same price I paid for this Qubed amp when I got it in 2006, so although the tech has gotten better, I still can't say enough about this amp. I've heard so many more extra nuances on some tracks I didn't get with my old one. I'll be supporting my Oklahoma brothers from now on, they can make some quality f*ckin products, that's for damn sure.

I finally upgraded my system from 2 RF 12's, And a sony xplod "2200w" amp. I purchased this amp back in February along with 2 sundown audio 12's. I have nothing but good things to say. my lights do not dim anymore. And ive never had a problem with the amp shutting off or getting hot. I'm running it on stock electrical and shitty wires. Still runs awesome!!!

Rating Great Amp for the Price
 
I absolutely love this amp. It handles heat very well. I live 2 hours away from school, so when I travel and am playing music the whole ride, I need something that won't overheat. This thing has never once cut out on me. I have a stock electrical system and running it at 1 ohm nominally if there is a question about that. I have owned the amp for nearly a year now and I am very satisfied! I would buy from AQ again, and again..

In 15 yrs of experimenting with car audio, this is one of the most solid amps I've ever come across. Since Aug 2011 it's been driving an IDMAX12 V.3 D4 and been flawless...power delivery, sound quality and ability to remain at a nominal operating temp. Even with a completely packed trunk in 100deg weather over a 6.5hr road trip it never faltered. Any hesitation I once had concerning quality from SoundQubed vanished immediately upon install. Would reco time and again.

No BS! This thing simply does what it is designed to do. It delivers CLEAN solid power and never gets hot! One of the best amps you can buy for the money in my opinion. The remote gain knob with clipping indicator is a bonus. I've got it pushing a single HDC3 15" D2 sub in a ported 4 cube box tuned to 38hz. It down right pounds and surprises the hell out of people. I'm an AQ fan no doubt! I've already got people lined up for installs and asking where they can get AQ. :-)

Rating Horrible Sound Quality
 
Had this amp professionally installed, it sounded so bad that the installer was afraid it would damage my subs. This thing has no sound quality at all, it just causes your subs to make a horrible farting noise regardless of what you set the gain to. It sounds like crap compared to my old DB Drive a600 amp that I got off of Craigslist for $50. And now I have to pay return shipping on a brand new amp. Don't waste your money on this piece of crap.

Rating Crystal Clear with a punch!
 
Clean solid amp! Like everyone else said, "This is probably the best amp I've ever owned!" and it's no lie! I have this amp pushing a single 15" AE infinite baffle at 4 ohm. It does the job and then some. My setup is built out for strictly SQ and this was definitely the amp to push the bass. Super clean bass in a small compact unit! It barely gets hot, warm but not hot. Thinking about switching my Elemental Design amp for the AQ 120.4. Anyways, I highly recommend it especially for the price.
