Representatives from RPM Electronics have been traveling and competing in events in Washington State for the last few years, always placing very well in the Sound Quality competitions. In the Spring of 2017, MECA event coordinator Steve McIntyre was approached about scheduling an event in B.C. “When Edwin Halim of RPM Electronics approached me with the idea of coordinating a sound quality event in Canada, I was very excited to branch out into this new territory”, says Steve McIntyre of MECA. “Edwin and I spent a few months planning and organizing this event and it was a huge success being the first MECA event in the area”.
