The AQ's are known to do better in higher tuned setups or SPL type, the BL's in a proper enclosure will do everything you want. I do not think switching would be an upgrade at all.

Do y'all think there is a better choice in sub for around 400$ or should I just stick with the bls

No, I meant what is your current box tuned to.

As already stated, the BL is more for you.

I agree on using the BL. I've used the Q and the HDC3, both of which were in boxes tuned in the low 30's (32hz for the Q, 34hz for the HDC3). The Q peaked at around 38hz whereas the HDC3 was peaking at 46hz. The HDC3 didn't have a problem playing the lows though the Q definitely had more authority below 30hz. I also trust the build quality of the Q much more so than the HDC3...there's a reason the HDC3's are only rated for 1000w even though they can take quite a bit more thermally.
