Hybrid Audio Technologies-equipped vehicles achieve what no other competition team has done before, earning both of the coveted SBN Triple Crown awards, the highest achievable honor in sound quality competition.
Hybrid Audio Technologies has become the choice of car audio champions around the world since its inception almost eight years ago. Since then, no other brand has achieved more in organized sound quality competition.
For the first time in several years, Spring Break Nationals was no longer host to the IASCA INAC finals event, however the competition was stronger than ever.
Team Hybrids’ members did an outstanding job as usual, and had a few new and returning members who proved their worthiness in exceptional ways.
Key placements included Chris LaCombe, Team Hybrids’ Coordinator, with a 1st place in IASCA’s Pro class for sound quality, and backed up with first-time IASCA competitor, Neil Cobilla in 3rd place, an outstanding achievement. In IASCA’s Ultimate class, Garvin Williamson was runner-up in his first-ever sound quality competition, even despite technical difficulties with his digital signal processor. And finally, in Expert Solo and Pro/Am, Klifton Keplinger and Rick Haentjens took home the coveted SBN Triple Crown’s in both the two-seat and one-seat divisions, respectively; a result never before accomplished by one competition team.
In other events, Robert Hilton was runner-up in MECA’s Street class and Dave Brooks returned to competition with a fresh build, and achieved 3rd in MECA’s Modex class.
“We enjoy the Spring Break Nationals each year as a ‘must attend’ event. It is a perfect mixture of industry event and car audio competition, and this year did not disappoint. The weekend was made even sweeter taking home both Triple Crown awards, IASCA’s highest honor” noted Scott Buwalda, founder and CEO of Hybrid Audio Technologies.
