Default Question regarding the Audioque AQ20

Can this amp run DAILY at .5 ohm and still be covered under warranty? It is not going to be burping, music only. Voltage will be kept up to at least 12v so none of that "let's see if it'll run at 10v" crap. I will make sure the amp gets as much power as it needs with enough gel-cell batteries and high-output alt and possibly 2/0 wires for pos AND neg. I need at least 7000 watts RMS at either 2 ohms or .5 ohm for four 12" Solo-Xs all dual 4 ohms.

If not can your company make me one that does rated power at 2 ohms?

There is no warranty on it :

AudioQue 20

"All repairs are the responsibility of the owner. If you don’t know the ins and outs of your comp system to the finest detail, this isn’t the amplifier you need."

"We do not warranty competition products. We have designed the AQ20 with the rigors of competition in mind, the best and strongest parts are used along with years of past experience driving over engineering of critical stress areas. The AQ20 is designed and built without compromise, to deliver the strongest amplifier possible."

"If you are asking about how low a load the AQ20 will run, you probably don’t know enough to use the amplifier."

Depends on rise, I only see 5500 watts out of mine strapped at 2 ohms nominal, cuz I rise to 6.5 ohm reactive. If you can get them close to 2 ohm reactive on the strapped pair you would see easily over 8k.

Or you could look into an amp that you dont have to wire down just to make power.

I saw that on their site before posting this and frankly I'm a bit offended by that, like I must be an idiot for asking questions. If the amp doesn't list a .5 ohm load yet they say it's designed for serious comps then why not post a number for a half ohm load if it's so bulletproof?

I am thinking about the AQ3500s strapped but space is limited and plus the AQ20 is only a little more than two AQ3500s, but I think I get warranties for the 3500s? The amp is going into a show car that will only be driven like 5 months out of a year.

It's either this amp or the AB VFL1100 or that US Amps 100HC Ultra on eBay. I was thinking about the Kicker Warhorse but I think it might be too wide for my install. I would buy one used but the thing is this is for my buddy and he wants warranties.

We had two US Amps USA-2000X but I sold it to 2flo because I want something that's more efficient and doesn't get super hot since it's class AB.
