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.

New SQL CD Now Available

Yes, after almost 2 years of waiting and waiting, our newest SQL source is available.  This is produced in conjunction with Arc Audio and is a compilation of Chesky catalog greats.  We will have support material to help with understanding what the judges are listening for in each track.  These are only $15 for Members, and should be available at all MECA SQL contests from the Event Director.  They can be purchased through and there is a $3 charge for shipping and
For the record, the Chesky Ultimate Demonstration Disc is no longer available as a hard copy CD; it is download only.  There are no CD's left in our inventory or from Chesky.  Our 2015 Rule Book will state that SQL judges are to use approved judging sources, and we will include a list with this new CD, the old Chesky Ultimate Demo Disc, and other proven tracks that help us map out the scores in the Sound Quality contests.  We are reviewing use of music files and 2015 technology for this season's rules.

 Much thanks to Arc Audio for helping us bring in a new era of listening for our Members.
