    hey red your all good in my book
    and your right on several points
    i also try vary hard to ENCOURAGE it even at a local level becase we are in the middle of the backwoods here in north idaho
    i also try my best to answer questions without bias to any one brand of equipment and im also here to learn more each day.
    thank you red for stating it. locals are just that in the grand scope of comps.
    thank you red for all the help you do offer the newbies and many others here
    heck someday i hope i have somone to ask the techincal questions and get a good answer.
    you are good in all your advice that i have read to others.
    two thumbs up for your work here on the forms.

    Check back to them all on a regular basis, they are constantly updated.


    it can be as involved or as noninvolved as you want it to be, that's one of the nice things about it.
    Thanks.
    Problem, though. I'm in Miami, and none of those links have any events near me. I find it hard to believe there are no such events in the Southeastern Florida area. Are there other places to look?

    I find it hard to believe as well. Especially since one of the biggest events in the nation takes place in Daytona.

    You will probably have to drive a bit to make it to a show, that's just part of the game.

    I know for a fact that the MECA events are not always up to date, and even more are scheduled furthor along during the year that are not yet even on the official schedule yet, so deciding that there isnt anything in your area may be a bit premature. For example, my SPL Team is going to be throwing a show this summer, and its not on any event schedule yet.

    On a side note, I noticed the poll has alot of people voting "why would you want to compete" .... and that puzzles me a bit. I know I compete mainly for the fun of it, and to find out what real people are using in their systems instead of looking at the goofy non-reality based vehicles in those car audio magazines with installs that no one can afford. These shows are usually based around normal average people, which I particularly like because its more reality based implementation of equipment than what you see in a magazine. Also ive met alot of friends by competing, friends id of never of had if I had not been in the scene. I would hope threads like this would spawn some more people into competitng.

    I've sent them an email, and since I can't seem to register on their board, it's a bit hard to keep up to date

    Having shows show up on their schedules throughout the season isn't something that's just limited to MECA, the same thing happens with IASCA and USACi, however, where the current shows are scheduled, it's a pretty good indication that they won't have any in the area.

    Not to mention MECA is having their finals the same week as SEMA, THAT'S some smart **** there...lol

    Once I found that out, I pretty much whiped my slate of MECA for this year.

    The reason there are more people voting that is because there isn't simply a NO, I don't compete option.

    That's the only option there for people who don't compete and don't plan on it

    haha yeah the worst instals are always a topic when I go to car shows...people always seem to remember it and send me pictures to add to it, but i forget to do it.

    I think there were like 300 or so of those Audiobahn stir fry wok's made, cause ive seen at least 5 in my life so far in varoius cities even in ****ty audio shops. They are, completely useless allthough they do kinda look intimidating.

    instead of belittling someones efforts, you might want to try and clean up your work

    ok,

    #1. I run my own car audio fourm, so I can damn well post any subject that I want weather anyone likes it or not. Additionally, I can post a gallery of whatever I want without any prior permission from you or anyone else for that matter.

    #2. You dont even know wtf we're talking about, obvioiusly my6x96 has been to my website, and KNOWS WTF he's talking about, so whats your angle besides not knowing WTF we're talking about?

    #3. Where do you get off saying that to me? You trying to pick a fight? Because I can surely accomodate you if you like.

    #4. I think the phrase "who asked you" is primarily important in referencing any value to your post. Because there isnt any besides attempting to attain some moral ground, of which you still havent got a clue what your talking about (reference #2 and #3 for more information on this)

    So before you attempt to grow a brain, use come common sense and dont post antagonistic posts in a thread you surely had no business in to begin with.

    I think where Ces/////M3 is getting lost is that you compete in SPL, NOT SQ, the installs and the end goals are completely different.
