Team Audio Xperts Hits Sacramento!

Team Audio Xperts adds new members for Sacramento show
I would like to personally welcome Noel and Tammy to Team Audio Xperts! We have been working on this project since last year and we finished just in time for Sacramento’s first MECA event at Paradyme Car Audio on Saturday May 15th! Noel and Tammy have a 2004 Chevy Suburban featuring an Eclipse DVD/Navigation head unit, with Zapco amplifiers and Hybrid Audio Legatia 6.5″ 3 way components up front, and a pair of Audio Xperts 12″  AJ subwoofers!
A great big congratulations goes out to Noel and Tammy for scoring 80 points and a 2nd place win in the Modified class in their very first competition! This is a huge accomplishment! It is very competitive out there and to come away with an 80 point score is truly amazing! Most first time competitors are happy with a score in the low to mid 70’s, so to come away with an 80 the first time out is awesome! I believe with a little more time for speaker break-in and a couple of more competitions and tuning sessions we can improve on an already great score!

The rest of the team results are as follows:
Scott scored an 89.25 for a second place finish in the Modex class. We had 2 competitors from So Cal in the Modex class make the trip to Sacramento. 1st place winner Gary with his amazing Mercedes grabbed a 94 for the first place win and best of show SQ overall. Gary’s been fine tuning his car for over a year and all of his hard work is finally paying off.
Jim Becker aka Big Red, also made the trip from down south. Jim was the West Coast Champion last year and the one to beat this year. He scored an 89 just .25 points behind Scott, so we can see it’s going to be a battle between all three of those guys for the rest of the year! Fun Times!
The Scion scored an even 89 to take first place in the Master class and remains undefeated in it’s class. We were up all night and morning once again making speaker upgrades and getting ready for the show….man I am getting to old for this staying up all night business! But it’s still fun and I love it!

Our next event is a Triple Point event in Visalia, Ca. on June 5th. This means our cars will be judged by three individual judges and the scores averaged. This will be a tough competition and we are expecting more cars in attendance than we have seen all year!
Can’t wait!
Look out for the results on the next update…until then
God bless and take care!

First place and Best of Show again!
pril 10th marked the third MECA event in Northern California and Team Audio Xperts was ready once again. This was the first event in Fresno and we saw new competititors in our classes. Scott’s Charger placed second in the Modex Class and our Scion placed first in the Master Class as well as Zapco Best of Show and SQL best of show with a score of 89 points. This score also places the Scion in the number five spot in the country for highest score. It was a long drive down to Fresno but was well worth the effort! Check out our pics from the event here:

Just last Saturday,May 1st marked our first event in Hayward California. Team Audio Xperts rolled west to Hayward to compete with the Scion, Scott’s Charger, and Mike’s Acura TL which we had just finished making upgrades to  the night before. Mike has been placing in second and third place in his class all year and really wanted first place this time around. In fact he demanded a first place win! No pressure for us! After working on his car for 3 weeks making the necessary adjustments to speaker placement and tuning, the moment of truth was upon us. To Mike’s surprise he was awarded 84.3 points which yielded him first place in his class, the PHAT Car award which is a judges choice award, and a most improved score award as well. He had scored a 54.5 at his last event. That score also places Mike in the number 10 spot in the country for highest score! A great big congratulations goes out to Mike!
Our Scion scored a first place in the Master class again as well as first place in the expert class for installation and for the first time ever we competed in SPL and took a first place in the modified 4 class with an SPL of 136.6!
We continue to be undefeated in California  with the Scion and we have another round of ungrades to complete before the next competiton.
Scott’s Charger was the star of the show this time around, scoring a 86.8 which earned him first plce in the Modex class as well as Best of Show honors with the highest score of the event! Looks like the changes we made from the Fresno show paid off and the Charger is sounding sweet!

So with this last event Team Audio Xperts has 3 cars in the top ten in the country for highest score! An awesome accomplishment for my team and a big congratulations to Scott and Paco for that one! Both of you worked very hard on all of the cars and your efforts have been acknowledged! Check out the graphic below for the top ten SQL standings off the MECA website!

I am very proud of my team for working hard these last few weeks getting prepared for the shows and also taking care of our other clients who needed their cars done also! It’s a tough thing to juggle sometimes to take care of everyone when they want and I really appreciate everyone’s patience! So a great big Thank You to Paco, Scott and especially my family who has been so understanding!

Until next time, take care all!
Vinny
