"There are two things I have never had since I got "serious" into car audio. A 10" sub, or a decent dual sub setup."

 

I never had a serious 10" before either, so I rectified that this year with a single XCON in a huge ported box.  I LOVE it and I'm sure you'll be really impressed.

Thanks everyone for the positive responses. I'm super anxious to get these bad boys running.

It's going in a 2015 Honda Accord coupe. My last setup was a single sundown x8 and a fosgate r1200. Amp blew so I decided to just upgrade everything. X8 is on my bc3500 dmm'd at 1100 watts (before rise) right now while I wait. I've got an xs power d3400 and skyhigh 2/0 power/ground/big 3. 

Ill probably need another batt and maybe alternator, but I'm waiting to see how voltage looks before spending a ton more money.

That box looks very nice : I love the color, and the finish.

But I don't understand the 2 8 Ga wires in a single terminal.

Thanks! There isn't a lot of room to hook up to on the back of my terminal cup. Two dvc subs in parallel, this way each sub only needs two terminals instead of 4.  I guess the colors could be confusing that was a test shot, of course it would be two + in one and two - in the other

Finally got them! 

First step was to mark my holes and add the inserts. This was my first time ever using them and it was definitely a painful process, but at least I learned along the way.

I also kept a cutout in case one ever goes out I'll be able to run a single(with less power of course)

I don't think your gonna need that cutout anytime soon, unless you just beat it to death, with a lot of dirty power. Send it a good signal, and you should be good to go for the life of the vehicle,:nightrider: and then some.

I have to drop one more update now that these pups are mostly broken in. They are absolutely phenomenal. Im in love! Flat as a pancake from 30-60, solid midbass rolloff so they blend well, and they can dig down to 25 before losing most of their output. Did I mention the really loud part on ~3k, yeah they do that really well too. I had a few friends throw random demo songs at them and everything sounded crisp,sexy, and loud. Thanks SSA!

Enjoy your system now ! :dancing:

Those subs are very nice, I love them too.

      A brief introduction to the all new SSA Demon, but first a farewell to its predecessor. 
           Our very long running SSA Dcon has ridden off into the sunset, or at least taking a breather.  The SSA Dcon was our second subwoofer model we ever launched.  At the very beginning, we had the Icon and as it gained traction we saw there was a need for a pure SQ sub of more modest power rating than that the Icon.  So in early 2008, the first SSA Dcon was launched.  (The Xcon followed shortly after).  That being said, the Dcon was almost an immediate hit, with a long 2" copper coil (rarity to have one made in the USA) triple stack motor, rear vent.  The Dcon was very affordable, well made, quite efficient, clean across the entire range, and flexible with enclosure demands.  It is interesting as there are some SSA Family members who swear by their Dcon and will not give it up ever.  (It even became a favorite of some of the home audio crowd).  All that being said, the Dcon evolved a bit for its second generation, we made a leap forward in motor force moving to what is best described as a scaled down Xcon motor, with a large single slug, solid pole, and deeply bumped back plate, while beefing up the suspension and leads.  We were able to bring the power handling up 33% while not hurting the sound that made the Dcon successful.  There was a stretch of a few years, before we ran out of stock, that the SSA Dcon 12 was our all time best selling subwoofer.  So its existence was very important to SSA.  Well with changes in the market (read:customer demands and amps getting much cheaper), as well as sky rocketing material costs, building the Dcon in the USA no longer was an option, so production stopped early 2017 for both the Dcon (and Gcon) and inventory ran out later that year. 
           Late last year, due to the long lay off with out the Dcon (and Gcon), we started development of an updated Dcon at a new build house.  The quality and performance of our SSA Evil1 tweeters were above our expectations, so we decided to send more production to that same build house.   As we saw that the market slowed overall for modest power rated subs due to power getting cheaper and people wanting higher power handling subs, so the market began to really start heating up in the 500 - 1200 watt range, I knew we needed to address it.  There is an 8" model developed, but it will not make it this first production run.  
           The new model had to handle more power and have more xmax while not sacrificing the balanced and clean sound the Dcon had established for nearly a decade.  That meant larger motor, larger coil, more suspension, larger leads, thicker cone, taller surround, etc.  In the end, all of the changes that happened to the over all design, we could no longer call it a Dcon.  In sticking with the theme of the Evil, a model name that has become so well known, while respecting the Dcon, the Demon name was selected.  The Demon is a great blend of the previous Dcon and Xcon, both in design and appearance.  In prototype testing, the SSA Demon thrived smaller to mid-sized ported and mid-sized sealed enclosures.
      Quick SSA Demon stats:
      2.5" copper coil Aluminum former Aluminum Shorting ring Solid pole, non-vented bumped back plate Large single slug motor Pressed pulp cone Tall roll surround Push terminals Dual Nomex progressive spiders Stitched tinsel leads Large dome dustcap I will list T/S specs and enclosure recommendations shortly.  We are very excited about the SSA Demon as it bringing back to our line up a pure sound quality subwoofer that will be affordable, while still having the characteristic SSA warmth and output.
