Well it is official now. They are down to 2 models again.

Radion G3: $649
Radion G3 Pro: $749

You may see a few of the G2's left because of existing stock but EcoTech is now out of stock.

and out of no where, let the speculation begin...lol

Distributor Merger notice:

EcoTech Marine and C2 Development (makers of the AquaIllumination product line)

EcoTech Marine and AquaIllumination have merged to better meet the needs of consumers while maintaining a separate brand presence in the market. Both companies will continue to manufacture distinct product lines.

"This merger gives both the EcoTech and AI brands the ability to thrive while filling specific market niches within the aquarium industry. The joint company will better meet the needs of each brand’s respective customers"
- Tim Marks, President of EcoTech Marine.

"This merger will allow AI greater capacity to develop and grow while staying true to our legacy of industry defining products."
- Chris Clough, President of C2 Development

"Our combined engineering and software development teams will enable both brands to develop better products and platforms. Ultimately, hobbyists will be the ones that benefit most from this merger."
- Justin Lawyer, Director of R&D at EcoTech

Merger FAQ

Will the either brand be absorbed?
No, both brands will remain independent. This exciting merger is designed to capitalize on the operational and infrastructure advantages that result from the merger of two US based manufacturers. Product lines and branding will remain separate and occur at the separate Iowa and Pennsylvania facilities.

Will retailer and distribution channels stay the same?
Yes, there will be no changes to the distribution channels. AI products will remain distributed by AI and EcoTech products will be distributed by EcoTech.

Will there be any changes to EcoTech or AI sales policies?
No. There will be no changes to EcoTech or AI sales policies.

Who do I contact for customer support?
EcoTech and AI customer support channels will remain exactly as they are currently. There will be no change to the support numbers, emails, or location. Warranty support, warranty conditions and product support will remain unchanged.

Will EcoTech products be sold under the AI brand or vice versa?
No, the brands, products and distribution will remain independent.

Hopefully now they can drop the price even more. This happened a few years back with Toyota and Subaru. The outcome was much better products !

They are going to be sharing information and eventually someday i bet it will be one company that utilizes the best of both technologies i see this as a win win

Better buying power and sharing engineering.

Although I hope that is the case, my first reaction was the opposite. In the past they had to be aware of what each other were doing. AI's introduction of Hydras, etc had to have a bearing on how they priced the Radions. That incentive is no longer there. Sharing technology is ultimately good for the consumer, so the products will improve. Maybe just not at a reduced cost. A better profit margin will probably encourage more innovative ideas and increased customer service though.

This merger gives both the EcoTech and AI brands the ability to thrive while filling specific market niches within the aquarium industry.

This comment concerns me. The 52 and Radion are in the same niche.
