On Friday October 19th, Vice News featured a story about the 2017 MECA World Finals. Hours of footage was edited down to about five minutes featuring multiple MECA competitors and champions. Be sure to watch the video which is embedded with this post!
As in years past, we have setup a way to check and see if you have qualified to compete at the 2016 Unified Car Audio Finals and to pre-register using PayPal. To check and see if you’ve qualified, go to http://www.mecaevents.com, enter your member number and see if you’ve qualified!
(For those observant members, don’t freak out about the URL resolving to an IP address. I’m (the webmaster) working on moving everything to Amazon Web Services, and this is the new server things will be hosted on.)
Our club is a featured part of the Slamology car show this weekend in Indianapolis at the Lucas Oil Raceway.
100+ MECA members will gather with car audio enthusiasts and professionals for SQL and SPL contests. We will be determining the best sounding, best installs, and loudest vehicles playing music, and those strictly playing for sound pressure with outrageous bass note volume levels.
Slamology features live music, a top-notch car, truck, and motorcycle show, and MECA is one of 3 sound-off organizations at the show.
Thanks to B2 Audio and Ohio Generator for co-sponsoring our awards.

Our annual SQL Judge Training session in Nashville is coming up, and we have room for 7 – 8 members for each session. There have been many requests for SQL Judge Training, so we are having morning and afternoon sessions at the studio. There is a fee of $125 per member, which includes listening/training at OmegaLab Studio and a symphony ticket. Members who would like to bring a Guest to the symphony may do so, and will only have to pay for the ticket, around $65 – $75. Judges will practice scoring in vehicles. We will select judges to work at Freezefest, the next day, from the best ears in the group.
Please contact Steve Stern at email@example.com or call 615-851-7428 to make reservations and arrangements. Click the image below for more details about the Nashville Symphony performance scheduled for that evening (or click here).
