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.

MECA News and Announcements

66 Vehicles for 1st 2015 MECA China Event

MECA China hosted the first event for the 2015 season in Kunming City, in Southwest China.  66 vehicles showed up to the highly anticipated car audio competition, held on July 17-18th.

 

2015 United Finals

MECA, IASCA, & dBDRA and Announce the 3rd Annual

Unified Finals Car Audio Championships event at the

Von Braun Center in Huntsville, AL, on

October 17-18, 2015

Car Audio Competition organizations dBDRA (dB Drag Racing Association), MECA (Mobile Electronics Competition Association) and IASCA (International Autosound Challenge Association) are once again joining forces to produce a unified finals event. The event will be held at the Von Braun Center in Huntsville, AL, during the weekend of October 17-18, 2015. This event will include all competitors from SQ to SPL and will allow for the opportunity to compete in multiple formats all under one roof.

The venue was host to the 2nd Annual Car Audio Championships in 2013 and was liked by many competitors, requesting that we return to the venue. Upon research and consideration of the competitors’ requests, the decision was made to return.

As in years past, the event will feature a “Quiet Zone” for SQ Judging in IASCA and MECA each morning of the event, and plans are under way for the option of Friday night judging of sound quality vehicles. An SQ schedule will be released within the next 30 days.

The SPL competition will take place in the building with ample space to hold more than 100 vehicles. Plans are already under way for an improved floor plan/lane structure to improve traffic flow.

"Many IASCA competitors have stated they really enjoyed the Huntsville venue and in all honesty, we liked it too" said Moe Sabourin, Director of Operations for IASCA "Hotels were located virtually next door to the venue, restaurants were nearby and access to the building from all directions was easy. Plus, the Von Braun Center is a quality building worthy of hosting an event of this caliber; we look forward to returning there in 2015.”

“The dBDRA is thrilled to have finals back in Huntsville again for 2015.” Said dB Drag Racing Association Marketing Director, Celise Harris “The collaborative effort of the organizations is a huge benefit to all of the parties involved. The dBDRA will also offer crossover organization points for competitors to use towards their Finals points requirements. We understand that there are only so many weekends available during the season and we want to include as many participants as possible. The location in Huntsville should offer ample space to accommodate everyone.”

“The MECA club is committed to enhancing the awareness and popularity of car audio sports, for us SQL and SPL, and all car audio and mobile electronics gear, products and services.  The venue in Huntsville will be packed with the cream of the crop of car audio competitors from around the USA, Mexico, and Canada. We’ve seen a bump in interest and participation in what we do, and the event in Alabama will cap off a great season for members and fans,” stated MECA Commissioner Steve Stern.

 

Geoff Schneider is the new Ohio Event Coordinator

Great news for Ohio competitors:  Geoff Schneider is taking responsibility for organizing and judging events in the Buckeye State.  Geoff has been an SQL competitor and has had the official 3X Judge Training, and is ready to complete the season, and work on building the club and contests for 2016.

Thanks to Geoff for his dedication and service to our club!

 

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 paypal.com and there is a $3 charge for shipping and
handling.
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.
