Car Audio Competitions.
MECA is the abbreviation for Mobile Electronics Competition Association, which is a club and contest organization that has been promoting car audio competitions for over 23+ years. MECA leads the industry to promote car shows and events with music, fair and fun contests for people who love loud and clear audio in their cars and trucks.
Sound Pressure League Competitions
Contests are designed for all levels of competition, from the beginner to advanced professionals.
Sound Pressure League contests are not solely dependent on how much money you’ve spent and what brand equipment you run in your vehicle. The classifications are based on design complexity, vehicle type, and potential to make “bass” that is fair and fun for our members.
Sound Pressure format uses the clamp meter to measure true power output, combined with woofer cone surface area, the “Pressure Class Formula”, is how the classes are bracketed in each Division. If you’re still asking yourself, “Should I compete?” the answer should be a resounding YES! our rules afford everyone a fair chance.
We also offer MECA Kids which is our bass music contest using power wheels toys with our MECA Kids operating their audio systems.
We also offer 2 additional formats which is our Park and Pound and Dueling Demos competitions and as of the start of the 2022 season we have overhauled the Dueling Demos format and have now added a new score sheet which makes this a more competitive format.
Sound Quality League Competitions
Competing in MECA’s Sound Quality League is all about sound quality and excellence of installation. It’s not about product, personalities, or politics. It’s about performance. Live, rich, full-balanced sound is what we listen for. Safety and outstanding appearance are what we look for, displaying the talents and skills of our Members, and our Retail Members who provide professional installation services.
The SQ League offers several formats including, Install, RTA, Sound Quality, Ride the Light and Show and Shine.
All the above formats for both SPL and SQL are offered for Cars, Trucks and Motorcycles.
Everyone is invited to participate in our club and contest activities. MECA State Champion credentials earn bragging rights, and our World Champions are recognized among the most accomplished competitors in organized car audio sports around the world.
Car Audio Competitions Near Me?
This is probably the number one question we get asked, “when will there be a MECA car audio event near me” The simple answer is we will have them anywhere anytime, we just need the locations to have the competition events and this is where you come in, if you are a shop looking to host a show, you can submit the online submission form, “Wanna Host a MECA Event” or if you are a competitor and know of a shop or a location to host an event let us know, provide their contact information and we can do the rest, just fill out the Contact us form with their details. Keep in mind that SPL competitions need a location that can accommodate high volumes of bass and sound pressure.
We also suggest keeping an eye on the MECA events calendar as we update the calendar often and typically hold 100 to 170+ events per season and we are growing!
