GCON replacement ETA?

Recommended Posts

I'm in the market for a daily driver sub. 

I just finished my choices and was looking for a GCON 12d2, but come to find out they aren't being made anymore.

Is the replacement coming anytime soon?

It's going to be a while.  If you needed D4, I could have hooked you up.

Yes, I have the updated prototype with me now and will begin testing the moment I have a moment.  I hope to put it into production asap.  We do have 8's on the way very shortly.

May  I ask why you think that?  The Icon can perform quite well with even modest power.

I had an ICON 10 on 300 watts and it surprised everyone who heard it. SSA subs are very efficient.

I meant price wise, not performance.

I'm looking for a SQ 12 around $200.

If power handling isn't a paramount issue the NVX XQW 12's are on a BOGO sale at Sonicelectronix. $200 nets you two subs built by SB Acoustics and are along the same line as the Arc Audio Black series subs.

I'd like to stick with a single sub, don't want to give up too much space for a box. 
And power handling around 700-1000rms. 

That Gcon was perfect for my needs... *tear*

I hope to kick off production for at least the 12" model in the next two weeks or so.  Would be nice to be ready for the holidays.

I would like to sign up to be product tester for production model #00001. 

I'll try my best and be patient, but this project has been in the planning stage for far too long, and the want to get it over with is getting strong.

Once the 8's arrive and are good to go, then I will turn my sights to 10's and 12's.

That guy pooped on my thread. I'm really upset...

I saw the Gcon prototype video on Facebook. Hopefully it'll be available for purchase in the next month or so...

We are working towards getting them in production asap.  The latest version of the prototype is great all around. :)

Do you think these will be ready before the end of the Black Friday deals?

Actually those pictures are the Dcon replacement.  The Gcon replacement is already in production, 12" only at the moment, 10" will come after.

Patiently wait for the DCON 15

At the moment, I am planning for an 8/10/12.  The 15" version didn't sell all that many and it mostly was a home audio sub.  I can consider it down the road on the next build run depending on the demand.  At the moment, the 12" prototype is sounding excellent.
