Whelen Avenger II

DAMN... Not what I was expecting. NH State Police have been running dual ION based dash light and I was expecting something based on that. Unfortunately, it looks like cut the LED count down to 6? The current single color Avengers have 8 LEDs.

if you look at the close up pictures on Facebook, I think there's six on the single. The dual avenger pictured above appears to have 9 LEDs a head, but that may depend on how many colors you have in a head

Ever since the ION family was released, I thought about Whelen bringing back the Dash-King light housing and stuffing two ION lightheads inside. Is this what the NHSP are running in their vehicles?

I do like the Avenger II, especially with the integrated LR11 takedown modules. I wonder if the LR11 modules can be had in red or blue (or amber), similar to the perimeter lightheads with linear and TIR optics.

There's another product just released: the ION T-Series Linear lighthead: http://www.whelen.com/auto/product.php?head_id=12&cat_id=74&prod_id=726. Looks quite familiar, haha.

I'm still waiting for the ION-based Dominator ... what are they waiting for?

Kinda disappointed...Actually, let me rephrase. Very Disappointed.

It appears the Single, DUO, and TRIO all have the same total of LEDs, which is twelve. Now now for the single color, this is awesome and I'm sure it will pack a punch in a windshield or from behind tint. ...but for the DUO and TRIO...looking at the pics, that's a different story. Only having 2 LEDs in that large linear reflector and then the two TIR at either end with all that space, I just don't see it being effective.

...but maybe I'll be proved wrong once I get my hands on one.

I believe this is a proprietary model but should have one in hands in a few weeks and will post it here...

I have a single TRIO and Tackleberry is correct on the diode count. I was skeptical and somewhat disappointed until I turned it on...doesn't compare to a LED spotlight or full bar scene but the white is remarkably bright...as are the other 2 colors. The single color model is basically too bright.

Hey guys.
Quick questions.
I wanted to go with the Avenger II SOLO.
Currently i use the previous version of the Single Avenger.
Is it worth to upgrade?
Is the 2nd generation brighter than the 1st?
I like the big bulky light output from the 1st generation.
I use it in a smaller European FORD behind the windshield on the driver side headliner.
