    Recieved a call from Car Audio and Electronics Mag...

    I'm REALLY excited and just needed to share!

    As some of you know, Monte and I compete in Car Audio competitions on a national level with my CarPC and GTi stereo.

    We went to World Finals back in October in Kansas City, MO and brought home first place and best of show for our class. First year out competing in the Sound Quality aspect of the competition. Needless to say, we were pretty happy with that.

    Focal and Audison have since offered to sponsor us (just recieved a $1k set of 6.5 Beryllium mid-range drivers for free!!!).

    While at world finals last year, Ben Oh from Car Audio and Electronics Magazine approached me and wanted to take my picture for their world finals coverage issue. So I got a 1" x 1" picture in the rag. Nothing big, but we were really happy, after all, it's just our first year out to compete really seriously with a system we built 100% in our garage in spare time. The only things we paid to have done was the paint work and the vinyl.

    So I get a phone call from Ben last night, he had lost my information and had to call Focal to get that information again. They want to come out and do a photo shoot/story on the car and us! WOW! That alone is very flattering. Makes all the hard work and the effort we put into the car that much more worthwild!

    THEN he invites us to attend Trifecta with the car. This is an invite only car show, with the best vehicles in each class being invited to attend SEMA with their vehicles!!! OMG! I don't even know where to begin! I couldn't sleep last night! Now I've got like a million things running through my head about what we need to do to prepare for the upcoming season...

    anywho, I am just excited and just wanted to share!

    Dude that's friggin' awesome! Just goes to show that doing stuff *right* pays off. As previously stated, congratulations!

    Now, you've gotta start thinking about a PR manager!





    P.S. Did you ever in a million years think it'd come to this?

    jan, congradulations.... popularity is the name of the game in the circuit, play your cards right & you could be in for a nice whirlwind, when it starts it builds momentum really quick & you can really get "up there" quick.....

    that's kinda how it happens, overnight.... how long it lasts & how high it goes depends on you, wish you the best of luck & all the happiness you deserve for your hard work & dedication.....

    thanks! means a lot coming from someone like yourself!

    I'm pulling my hair out trying to figure out what I can tweek and tune, etc on the car before all this happens.

    For the system, not much, might switch to the new Audison LRx amplifiers when they make it out in April. And put the mids in kicks...

    Other than that, trying to figure out what to do about wheels and some new seats...lol

    Jan, please accept my apologies! I guess I made the stupid assumption that because there are more guys in this than gals, I said what I said. With that, I congratulate you that much more for making it as big as you did in a predominately male hobby. Prop's to the women of the world that do what guys say can't be done by a woman!
