The Epsilon Group of Companies has pledged support for the Mobile Electronics Competition Association for the 2010 season and beyond. Soundstream, Precision Power, and Power Acoustik are now official Manufacturer Members of MECA, and the team name for each brand is recognized as an official MECA Team. The partnership has developed because of the number of Competitors that use these brands is so great and the recommendations to join MECA to the Epsilon management team have been growing over the past 2 years, especially from Retailers who sell Epsilon products.
Grizz Archer, spokesperson for Epsilon, expressed the excitement of joining MECA, impressed by MECA's stats and growth, and influence in the USA market. Grizz noted, "We have Competitors who will only compete in MECA events. With all the different types of contests that MECA offers, we make optimized products at different price points so anybody can compete and be competitive. With as hard as Steve Stern has worked to grow MECA and help our industry, we are happy to be a sponsor."
A key factor in the developing relationship was the meeting Grizz and Steve had at MECA's booth at CES in January. The Commissioner went over the comprehensive program MECA offers with Grizz and showed cost-effective promotion strategies centered on fun and fair mobile electronics contests in the Sound Quality League and Sound Pressure League. These, along with Show & Shine, MECA Kids, Boom & Zoom, and Ride the Light contests, demonstrate the multi-faceted interests of the club Members, fans, and spectators. Another big factor was the presence of Soundstream gear in the MECA lanes at SBN in Daytona Beach in March. Soundstream owners placed well in SQL and SPL contests, and they brought a lot of excitement to the event.On the International front, Power Acoustik has been the most used amplifier brand at MECA events in the Virgin Islands over the past 5 years, and has been very successful in the SPL and SQL lanes in St. Croix and St. Thomas, USVI and also Tortola, BVI.
MECA is pleased to have the opportunity to work with the Soundstream, Precision Power, and Power Acoustik brands and their Retailers.
