In addition to the MECA Competition, there was a separate car show where Ryan won 1st place for best domestic vehicle.

Hybrid Audio Technologies Press Release

One of our vendors, Hybrid Audio Technologies, wrote a press release announcing results not only from the MECA California State Finals, but the USACi World Finals which were held in Shreveport, Louisiana.

“For more than six years, vehicles equipped with Hybrid Audio Technologies products have dominated at the local, regional, national, and international levels in organized mobile sound quality competition. The weekend of September 24-25, 2011 was no different. Branches of Team Hybrids, the official competition team of Hybrid Audio Technologies, descended on three different locales to compete for ultimate sound quality honors.

At the United States Autosound Competition International (USACi) World Finals, held in Shreveport, Louisiana, Team Hybrids competitors Tracy Young, Joe Wallis, Steve Lasher, John Sketoe, John Roberts, David Seal, and Scott Buwalda vied for honors. At the conclusion of the trophy ceremony, five first-place national championships had been won by Tracy Young, John Sketoe, John Roberts, David Seal, and Scott Buwalda (exhibition class, single-seat Extreme SQ — an exhibition sound-only class). David Seal also won a runner-up second place trophy in another class he competed in. An additional, sixth first-place trophy was won by Erik Hansen, a non-Team Hybrids competitor using some of the Hybrid Audio Technologies products in his winning vehicle. Hybrid Audio would also like to recognize the efforts of Joe Wallis and Steven Lasher for their contributions at the event, as well as Team Hybrids coordination by John Sketoe.

Located 340 miles to the north, Team Hybrids competitor Todd Luliak competed at the 2011 Oklahoma State Championships hosted in Tulsa Oklahoma, posting the show’s highest sound quality score, and beating out notable stalwart/expert competitors for this distinction. Todd went on to win his class.

Finally, 1,530 miles to the west of Tulsa, Team Hybrids competitors Jim Bishop, David Mennie, Scott Welch, Jim Becker, and Vince Miranda vied for West Coast Championship honors. At the conclusion of the trophy ceremony, four West Coast Championships were crowned within the Team to Jim Bishop, David Mennie, Scott Welch, and Vince Miranda. Vince Miranda also went on to win not only the Xtreme Install class, but also the Best of Show Sound Quality, and the event’s “Best of the Best of Show.” Other runner-up positions were won by Hybrid Audio-equipped cars, including David Mennie’s effort in the Street class (David competed two vehicles at the event, and won a first and second-place honor, respectively). Hybrid Audio would also like to recognize the efforts of Jim Becker for his contribution and Team coordination at the event.

Hybrid Audio Technologies has supported organized sound quality competition since 2005, and to date has amassed eighty six (86) national-, league-, and world championships in that period of time.

“Naturally I am elated on how cars equipped with Hybrid Audio Technologies product fared at the three events this past weekend” noted Scott Buwalda, founder and CEO of Hybrid Audio Technologies. “We continue our reputation of having the finest-sounding cars by international judging standards. Thanks go out to the competitors that voluntarily choose to use our products, and the hard work and effort they put into their cars to make them the best in all of North America.”

Hybrid Audio Technologies is an Atlanta, GA USA-based high-performance speaker manufacturer. Hybrid Audio Technologies manufactures six product lines, from our budget-friendly Mirus line, to our Legatia Special Edition series, the world’s finest car audio speakers at any price.

Ryan B. Dream Project feat. in The Reporter

Posted in Uncategorized on June 10, 2011 by audioxperts

The Reporter (Vacaville, CA)

April 3, 2011

‘Dream’ car focus of fund-raiser for Vacaville native in the fight of his life

Author: Melissa Murphy/ MMurphy@TheReporter.com Section: News

The word may worry some adults but usually isn’t the first thing on the mind of most teenagers.It wasn’t something Ryan Bartlett had on his mind as a teen. Now at age 21 and recently diagnosed with testicular cancer, the Vacaville native wishes it had been. Bartlett said diagnosis came about five months ago, but something wasn’t quite right since he was 18. “I did have a growth, but I didn’t tell anyone,” he said. “Nobody knew about it but me. I’m paying the price now.” Bartlett, a graduate of Vanden High School, was in the middle of playing baseball for Cosumnes River College in Sacramento when he noticed the abnormality. Since then, the cancer has spread to his abdomen, lungs and brain. Bartlett was actually in Alabama last year helping with the gulf oil spill cleanup when he became ill, he came home immediately to start treatments of radiation and chemotherapy. Although the spread of the cancer is unsettling, to say the least, Bartlett is fighting hard. With the support from family and friends, he said, he’s not looking back. “Everyday, I think about the next day,” he said. “It’s my only option. I don’t want to not be around.”

There is also a physical reminder of how much family and friends are pulling for him to get better. A 2011, bright orange, Chevrolet Camaro was given to him by coworkers at the oil spill. “He was very ill and in the hospital,” said Tom Bartlett, Ryan’s father. “But when he found out about the gift, every waking moment is about the car. His fighting demeanor is stronger. It’s been hard for everyone, but he’s tougher than me.” Ryan has big dreams for the Camero including a new audio system, lighting, wheels, security system and graphics. A huge fan of the San Francisco Giants, Ryan wants to see black stripes added to the orange car. The additions to the car will become a reality with the help of Vince Miranda owner of Audio-Xperts in Vacaville who has set up the Ryan B. Dream Project where people can donate for the cause. Miranda has a goal to raise $20,000. “He’s a tough young man, he’s my hero,” Miranda said. “He’s such a great kid. He’s a fighter and has a spirit to overcome this disease. You wouldn’t think that he’s going through something like this.”

Ryan isn’t able to drive the car yet since he’s still dealing with some of the side effects from the treatments, including numb feet, but he’s had fun being the passenger. “It’s a little rocket,” he said. “It’s fun.” Ryan added that the support from family, his girlfriend and friends has been great. “The support has been incredible, it’s very motivating,” he said. “It’s a good feeling that helps me stay motivated.” And he has advice for others. “Go see your doctor, no matter what it is,” he said. “You don’t want something to creep up on you. This is not something you want to do when you’re 21 years old.” Donations to the Ryan B. Dream Project can be made online at the Audio-Xperts online store at www.shopaudioxperts.com. Information is online at www.audio-xperts.com.

The Ryan B. Dream Project

Posted in News on March 9, 2011 by audioxperts

The Ryan B. Dream Project

It is with a heavy heart that I write to you today. One of Audio Xperts long term clients, Ryan Bartlett and his family need my help so I am asking for yours. As you will read below in the letter I asked his dad write, last year he was diagnosed with cancer and is currently undergoing an aggressive treatment including chemo and radiation. Ryan is a fighter and is very determined to beat this sickness. He is not only a gifted athlete, but a scholar and community servant. In an effort to keep his morale up, his family and friends have rallied together to buy him a 2011 Camaro and the first thing out of his mouth when he was told about it was “I’m going to see Vince and put together a bad ass system” Even though he was in the hospital at the time and in really no condition to travel. His father called me and asked if I could come visit him, and talk to him about his system. It was all he wanted to talk about in his hospital bed. So I went and spent about an hour with him. He told me all the things he wanted to do to his new car and it was adding up fast. His dad even had to tell him to slow down, because his budget wasn’t as big as his dreams. I knew right then and there that I had to do everything in my power to help this young man and his family. After being released from the hospital between treatments he came to my store last week to further discuss his system. I am so amazed by this young man’s will to live and fight this terrible disease and I want to do everything I can to make his dream come true. I am asking for any help you can give to Ryan and his dream. I just went live today on a “Ryan B. Dream Project” fund on my website to help family, friends, and anyone else who wants to, donate money to help Ryan.

I know times are tough for everyone but Ryan has really touched our community and we would all appreciate any help you can give.

Please forward this email and share the link below with anyone you know who can help us:

Thank you all for supporting Audio Xperts and helping us out to make Ryan’s dream car a reality.

God Bless you all,

Vince

PS
A very special thank you goes out to Scott Buwalda of Hybrid Audio Technologies, http://www.hybrid-audio.com/. Just this morning he donated a complete set of his top of the line Legatia 6.5″ 3-way component speakers for the build! Way to go brother…god bless

Ryan’s Bio:

My name is Ryan Bartlett.  I’m 21 years old. I grew up in Vacaville, California. I attended Vanden High School and excelled as a student athlete. I graduated with Honors and a 3.9 GPA. I volunteered throughout school with the traveling team I played baseball on. We did fundraising for those in need, served food to the elderly and helped coach Little League. I played Baseball from the time I was 8 years old. I played throughout school and was a High School Pitcher and Outfielder. I was recruited by many Colleges to play Baseball. I selected Consumnes River College in Elk Grove California. I was a freshmen starter at the position of Pitcher.

While working on the Gulf of Mexico BP Oil Spill disaster, I fell ill and was diagnosed with Stage 3 Testicular Cancer (Oct 2, 2010). I believe I had it for about 3 years. I never said anything because it never bothered me and did not cause me any real problems. I guess I thought I was young and nothing could happen to me. I was wrong. I have multiple tumors in my Brain, Lungs, and Abdomen. I’ve been fighting this terrible silent disease for 5 months now. My first line chemo had some success, but failed in other ways. I am going through second line chemo now. This included 3 weeks of whole brain radiation. I had a brain seizure that placed me in ICU in critical condition for 11 of the 15 days I was hospitalized. My goal is to continue my chemo treatments and receive very complicated Stem Cell replacement transplants at Stanford University Medical Center within the next month to two months. I plan to beat the odds and will become a success story. My mind is strong and I am a tough competitor. I am very motivated to beat this disease.
