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.

2014 Joint Finals Announced!

MECA, IASCA and dBDRA Announce Joint Finals at Tennessee State Fairgrounds in Nashville, TN on October 18-19, 2014

Car Audio Competition organizations dB Drag Racing Association (dBDRA), Mobile Electronics Competition Association (MECA) and International Autosound Challenge Association (IASCA) are once again joining forces to produce a joint finals event. The event will be held at the Nashville Expo Center at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds in Nashville, TN, home of the Nashville Speedway, during the weekend of October 18-19, 2014. This event will include all competitors from SQ to SPL and will allow for the opportunity to compete in multiple formats all at the same venue.

The venue will allow for separate SQ and SPL competition areas, as well as a car show and demo area. As in 2013, the event will feature a “Quiet Zone” for SQ Judging in MECA and IASCA each morning of the event and plans are under way for the option of Friday night judging of sound quality vehicles. The SPL competition will take place in the show arena with pit stalls for all competitors that include electrical power. The Sound Quality competitions will take place in the Creative Arts Building, with the manufacturer displays being the central focus of the building, flanked by the top sound quality cars from across the country.

The goal for IASCA has always been to give back to our members; the last two years of unification have been successful with not only our members, but with industry as well. The markets in which we have hosted this event have seen benefits as well, especially with the local retailers. We want to keep that momentum going and our decision on location was based on keeping it entertaining for all involved. Nashville provides entertainment value for all who attend and by bringing the event to that city, we can offer attractions we couldn’t in the past. Our members have asked for the show to be there since we began our unified effort and this is our way of saying we’re listening to what they want. IASCA is truly excited to be going to Nashville for 2014 and we are proud to be aligning with dB Drag Racing and MECA once again!

Moe Sabourin, Director of Operations for IASCA

The dBDRA is a proud partner in this continuing endeavor. Nashville is one of our favorite cities to host finals. It is centrally located to many of the dBDRA competitors that reside east of the Mississippi. We look forward to a great event with the IASCA and MECA competitors.

Wayne Harris, President of the dB Drag Racing Association

 

In addition to the SPL competition, the Sound Quality event will be enhanced at the event this year. “Come and listen to show cars with sound systems so clear, you'd swear you were at the concert! Demo vehicles and competition will be on display in the hall, for the car stereo expo,” adds Steve Stern of MECA. 

For more information on exhibiting or sponsorships at the event, please contact Steve Stern at 615-851-7428 or mecacaraudio@comcast.net.
