ATLANTA, GA (10.26.2016) – Hybrid Audio Technologies and Audiotec Fischer-equipped vehicles close the 2016 competition season with exceptional strength, earning key placements and several “multi-car sweeps” in IASCA and MECA at the Car Audio Championship in Louisville, KY on October 15-16, 2016.
Hybrid Audio Technologies and Audiotec Fischer USA hold precedence as the choice of car audio champions around the world since Hybrid Audio’s original inception 12 years ago. In the spring of 2016, Hybrid Audio Technologies assumed responsibility for importing the Brax, Helix, and Match products by Audiotec Fischer and developed Team Brax USA with established competitors. The offerings of both companies are complementary and include a wide variety of cutting-edge speaker, subwoofer, amplifier, and digital signal processing products sold by only the finest specialty retailers.
Fundamental achievements include Championships in IASCA’s Expert division (John Marsh and Larry Woolacott), Pro Custom (Anthony Davis), a Pro/Am division Top-Three Sweep (Larry Ng, David Traw, and Matthew Karlovic), and an Amateur division Top-Four Sweep (Marc Baes, Michael Young, Ben Zimmerman, and Steve Weigner). Additional remarkable achievements include MECA’s SQL Best of Show (Robert Corwin), SQ Best of Show (Scott Welch of Audio Intensity and Captain of Team Hybrids), and Install Best of Show (Anthony Davis). In Master, MECA’s most challenging class, the combination of Team Hybrids and Team Brax USA posted an unprecedented all-placement sweep (1st: John Mileham, 2nd: Mike Allen, 3rd: Larry Chijner, 4th: Klifton Keplinger, and 5th: Tom Meyers). Additional Championships were earned in MECA SQ2 (Cory Bradley), Extreme (Scott Welch), Modex (Rob Bess of Audio Specialists and Captain of Team Brax USA), and Modified (Robert Corwin). Among a total of forty-seven (47) second through fifth-place finishes by Hybrid Audio and Brax/Helix-equipped cars in the Car Audio Championship and IASCA Regional Event, one notably included 2015 IdBL sound pressure level (SPL) champion Matthew Karlvoic’s debut of his sound quality build, where he was awarded a 3rd place in the extremely difficult Pro/Am division.
Several top placements were earned using Hybrid Audio’s Stage III offering, including Tom Meyers in MECA’s Master class (MECA’s highest sound quality class), where Unity U3 (3.7″ Wide-Bandwidth Midrange/Full-Range) at an MSRP in the U.S. of $199.99/pair were used “tweeterless” and Unity U69 (6×9″ Midbass) drivers at an MSRP in the U.S. of $339.99/pair were used for front stage speakers; proving Hybrid Audio Technologies’ proficiency at any price point.
“Sixty top-five placements were earned at the Car Audio Championship and IASCA Regional Event, and I couldn’t be happier,” noted Scott Buwalda, founder, and CEO of Hybrid Audio Technologies and Audiotec Fischer Brands USA. “This marks the eleventh consecutive year of dominating organized sound quality competition at the national and international level; I am elated that the most serious car audio competitors around the world choose to use Hybrid Audio Technologies and Audiotec Fischer products.”
