Hybrid Audio Technologies is holding Grand Prix events throughout the world that include both training and competition in in-car sound quality (SQ).
The first events were held in Japan and China last March, followed by four events in the US held at Foss Audio & Tint (Tukwilla WA), Soundscape (Plano TX), Mobile Audio Plus (Bloomington IL), and last weekend, Sonus Car Audio (Clarksville TN). More than seventy consumers and dealers registered for the Sonus event.
A panel of experts at the Sonus event led training sessions that included SQ Fundamentals (time alignment, frequency curves for tonality, speaker placement, and more) and Hands-On Tuning. Then a panel of experts led a Q&A (Scott Buwalda of Hybrid Audio Technologies, Micah Williams of Sonus Car Audio, Scott Welch of Audio Intensity, Peter Jensen of Soundz Customz, and James Donaghy of High Output Audio) that covered topics including SQ fundamentals: basic tuning, advanced tuning and SQ, fabrication and installation with SQ considerations, and competition, SPL, powersports, and motorcycles.
Along side the panels was an IASCA double-point key event SQ competition, where ten cars competed. IASCA certified judge Tom Meyers judged the vehicles.
“Hybrid Audio is committed to the advancement of both in-car sound quality and sharing knowledge through organized training,” said Scott Buwalda, founder of Hybrid Audio Technologies.
Future events are planned, including an April 17, 2016 Grand Prix at Soundscape in Plano TX. For more information visit www.hybrid-audio.com/GP.
