I've heard that the AB's may have a bit better softparts than the AQ versions. Have never done head to head tests to confirm this.

I've seen the 15's in both versions and the AB's were a whole lot stiffer. Then again, companies tend to switch up their spiders and such over time.

What a sub can take is dependent on who is behind the knob.
