Welcome to MECA!

MECA is the Mobile Electronics Competition Association, a club and contest organization.  We have car shows with music, fair and fun contests for people who love cars and trucks and the mobile electronics, and bling, that are used to customize our rides.  Competive car/truck/motorcycle exhibitions with our Show & Shine score sheet are offered at most events.  Our Sound Quality League and Sound Pressure League contests are designed for all levels of competitors, beginner to advanced professional.  Ride the Light specialty lighting contests are great night-time events.  MECA Kids is our bass music contest using powerwheels toys with our MECA Kids operating the audio systems.

Our Rules Page includes an SPL Quick-Reference Classification guide, as well as calculators to assist in choosing a class. Click here to Check it out.

Winning at MECA Sound Pressure League contests is not solely dependent on how much money is spent and what equipment is run. The classification based on fusing and cone area puts efficiency ahead of all else, and makes the contest very fair. The fuses don't care what amplifier is drawing current through them. They only care about how much current(amperage) is drawn. This allows everyone a chance, even if they aren't hardcore competitors. So if the question, "Should I compete?" enters your mind, the answer is a resounding YES! because our rules will afford everyone a chance. Our Judges and Members will also be happy to help you learn and grow. 

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.

 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.

Thanks to our Competitors, Judges, FansRetail Members, and Manufacturer Members for all the support and participation that brings us together.

Finals Pre-registration due Monday, October 6th

Our club is getting ready for the Big Show of the year, with close to 100 vehicles expected for the 2014 World Finals Soundfest in Nashville on October 18-19th. 

The only results that are missing are from the last show in Arizona (expected 10/06), and all Georgia events. MECA Members who have not contacted the Commissioner to report scores for the GA events should do so immediately to exchange information so that proper points are earned and posted. We regret and apologize for the inability to obtain the score sheets from the Event Director responsibile for timely reporting.  This is totally beyond our control, very unusual, and not in the spirit of our contests and results reporting.

Arizona has their State Finals after the cut-off date for accumulating points, so those results will be posted, but they will not count for National Points Champions awards. 

The Competitors List for the Finals will be posted in this News section, and will be complete by Wednesday or Thursday.

All MECA Members are encouraged to check with their MECA teammates and friends to make sure that they know pre-registration ends on Monday, October 6th.  
Show & Shine and Ride the Light entries will be taken at the show.  There is no pre-registration required for Show & Shine or Ride the Light contests..

How Points Sharing Works for Finals

Our club is sharing points with other organizations so that Members can make it to Finals. This is an allowance for those who do not qualify in the normal way.  Events for dB Drag Racing, IASCA, and USACi are set up on our Events Schedule for tracking shared points, with the date at 9/01/2014.. The organizations allow 25% of required points to be obtained this way, with credit given just like 1X single point events.   So for MECA that's 10 points, and basically 2 score sheets shared from other organizations where the competitor took 1st place in their class.  Since the MECA Member did not purchase a MECA score sheet, and everyone else does for their contests, there is a $20/score sheet fee.  Event results link(s) are sent to the Commissioner who verifies that the MECA Member was at another sanctioned event, and the results are listed in the appropriate org's 9/01/14 event titled "Points Sharing".  This allowance is only to be used to get the required points necessary to qualify for Finals, and is not for points chasers to accumulate more points.
One of the main goals of MECA is to get as many people as possible qualified and participating in Finals, by the Rules requiring 40 points.

We expect 100+ USA vehicles at the 2014 World Finals Soundfest, held in conjunction with the Car Audio Championship in Nashville at the Tennessee State Fairgournds on October 17 - 19th.

This year MECA will have 3 Members from Mexico and 1 Member from Canada competing at Finals.  

September 28th is the last date to earn points, and any info regarding points sharing must be submitted to the Commisioner by October 1st.

Pre-registration ends on October 6th.
