With the Dcon >> Demon, this would be our Gcon >> Hellion. If you read the Demon topic, it will explain about how the Gcon had a similar life as the Dcon. As of March of this year, the Gcon 12 was our all time, best selling subwoofer. The Gcon, in a simplified explanation, was very close to the original SSA Icon, for a pinch less. A very well balanced and accurate, while also efficient sub that can could take some power while being flexible and composed in different enclosures in both home and car. So the Gcon was our affordable all around subwoofer for many different installs. As with the Dcon, our build house said it was no longer feasible to be made here in the USA.
Moving forward, we knew we had to bring back something really strong in the void that was left by the Gcon, as not everyone has the power for an Icon. This Hellion is going to be that next step in the timeline of the Gcon. Both in reaching back to the original Icon and Gcon sound, while stepping forward at the same time. In relation to the Gcon, the Hellion will have improved cooling, more Xmax, available 18" model, option of additional spider and upgraded leads, possible flat wound coil for more high output needs, a pinch more motor force, higher power handling, and a chromed motor finish. With the Hellion, we will be offering 10's through 18's, as well as a few options (something we have not really been able to offer in the past) as the Hellion will be made to order here in the USA. The good news is, the lead time will be substantially faster with the Hellion compared to our past build house.
