Name will be finalized shortly, as will specs, price and availability, so if you ask any of those questions I don't have an answer just yet. This is long over due, as we have needed an 8" sub for a decade now. Those of you who have been along for the ride, might remember we had a Dcon8 built 9 years ago, but production never happened due to cost of making it here in the USA. Production has not been kicked off yet, but we are VERY close. Some minor changes inside (unable to be seen from photos below) are being made to the design before we kick off. I am very pleased from the performance of the prototype and the output is very strong for an 8. It is a lower Qts. sub and really is surprising in a ported enclosure, while still being well behaved sealed. This is moving to an overhung, 2.5" copper coil, with a shorting ring.. Will be available in D2/D4, and an Fs right around 32.1hz. The sonic goal, (sound signature) was to have some of the warmth of the Icon, mixed with the crispness of the current Gcon. I feel, it is very close to that target. Currently, it is getting fed by the SSA prototype IC2200.1 @ 4 ohms mono (roughly 700+ watts). The 8 blends quite well with the Evil6.5's, and is not at all sweating the power being sent. Yes, the market segment that it is going to end up in is currently pretty packed, and this is not a revolutionary design, but it will be an extremely competitive driver in the top of the 8" cone 2.5" coil sub market, that is right on par with our current models and the sound is excellent, even to my picky ears. I am very excited to get these rolling and available by the end of spring. A little TBT link, the original Dcon8, it is on the far right in this photo:
