Attendees are immersed in the company’s culture and educated on their products' unique features

Mesa, Ariz. -- October 22-23 2022 — MSC, the North American distributor for high end car audio brands such as Brax, Helix and Match hosted 15 highly dedicated industry professionals, representing 12 companies from five different states for a two day training that has been called “just amazing” by those in attendance.

Kicking off day one with a call to action from company president Larry Penn, compelling attendees to imagine what is achievable by putting in just one more degree of effort, the primary objective of this event was to encourage dealers to think differently. Following an MSC catered lunch break, industry veterans and newcomers alike were educated on the proprietary time saving, problem solving and results producing features of the Audiotec Fischer DSP PC Tool software by Chris Van Ry.

After learning about tools such as Tune EQ, Input Signal Analyzer and Virtual Channel Processing, each person was able to hear the effects of equalization choices, crossover differences and time alignment in real time via a DSP/Laptop setup. “I had never used DSP PC Tool before, but the instructor made it so easy to understand that I left knowing how to tune a car,” said Juan Castillo from J’s Tint in Dallas, TX before adding, “I have been to many other trainings, but none have been as well thought out. All I had to do was get there and MSC took care of everything else!”

Consistent with the theme of the event and the MSC slogan “Different. Better. Together,” all attendees and MSC staff shared a meal, some drinks and some laughs at a local Brazilian steakhouse to end the day. On day two, the group was encouraged to “Cross the Line” to achieve better results and more success through use of the company's smart system designs, efficient Tuning For Profit step-by-step process for DSP tuning and the innovative, engineered audio packages that are Systems by MSC. Finally, each attendee was able to experience the end result of all that they had learned, by auditioning the two on site demo vehicles equipped with products from the MSC family of brands.

“I was so impressed by the sound of the F-150! Other DSP/amplifiers I have used always left me wanting more power,” Chris Foster of Handcrafted about the 2021 Ford F-150 whose factory B&O Unleashed system was truly “Unchained” with the DSP technology and sound quality of Audiotec Fischer and BLAM products.

With the increasing complexity of OEM audio and infotainment systems as well as the resurging demand for high quality sound, trainings like these are a necessity. With the next event being planned for early in the first quarter of 2023, anybody who is interested in attending is encouraged to contact their MSC sales rep or the main office at 480-372-2929.

MSC is the North American Distribution Partner for premium European brands including Audiotec Fischer (Brax, Helix, Match), BLAM Audio, Stinger Radar as well as Mobridge integration products from Australia. MSC specializes in specialty independent retailer support with a heavy focus on training and advanced product integration.

LONG BEACH, CALIF., November 8th, 2022JVC Mobile Entertainment (www.us.jvc.com/car) in conjunction with the Elite Distributor Alliance (EDA) held its 1st-ever “Hot Shots” sales training seminar October 21st-23rd at the Hilton Doubletree Conference Center in Downtown Orlando. Attendees were greeted by JVC staff, Jim Warren (Elite Distributor Alliance), Matt Yerger (iDatalink), plus special guests Dean Beyett & Fernando Lopez (5 Star).  

Early Saturday morning after a catered breakfast buffet, attendees experienced a full-product presentation by JVC Product Specialists Josh Bowen and Marcus Vasconcellos, followed up by iDatalink’s Yerger focussing on JVC’s exclusive iDatalink Maestro features along with what’s new and coming soon. During the afternoon, attendees encountered the full JVC culture with interactive product demonstrations, motorsport amplifier selling techniques by the 5 Star duo, a behind-the-scenes look at upcoming products, and a round table discussion with JVC product development personnel.

But the fun didn’t stop there. After dinner, the surprise entertainment was about to begin. Attendees walked through the doors in suspense to upbeat music, only to witness several chairs set up in front of the stage. A few minutes later, “The Incredible Hypnotist” Richard Barker appeared and the audience went wild. The next hour was described by guests as one of the most hilarious and memorable experiences of a lifetime.

Upon conclusion of the evening entertainment, guests were invited to Bowen’s Tacoma to experience the power of the DSP in JVC’s KW-Z1000W’s 10.1” floating panel receiver. Sometimes, dealers may neglect to properly tune an installed audio system, thinking the investment in a Real-Time Analyzer (RTA) and other equipment is cost-prohibitive. This theory was disproved through JVC and 5 Star’s simple and cost-effective demonstrable solution. Guests were also seated in the truck to experience the receiver’s impressive time alignment, parametric EQ, and staging capabilities. “This was a great way to demonstrate the power of the DSP technology inside of the receiver,” stated Jason McArty, Account Manager at DOW Technologies. “It has empowered me to better understand audio tuning and given me the confidence to better explain this to my dealers.”

On Sunday, Warren shared how JVC is committed to “aligning with its innovators” to provide greater “stability and growth” to its members. Steve Cote (JVC Eastern Regional Sales Manager), then shared his “Hot Shot” selling techniques, followed up by Trout driving home the entire 3-day experience with conviction.

“The journey embarked upon was unprecedented,” stated Ron Trout, JVC Director of Sales. “The combined level of knowledge and expertise by our hosts in conjunction with the commitment and aptitude of our salesperson attendees was truly remarkable.”   Guests were polled and provided overwhelmingly positive feedback, proclaiming it “A GRAND SLAM,” along with the inevitable question, “when will there be a Hot Shots Part Deux?”

DANIA BEACH, Fla. -- November 8, 2022  – Reinventing the wheel is always hard, but updating the new wheel is even harder. SounDigital saw an opportunity to do away with the old and bring something totally new to the table. With a slightly larger footprint than its predecessor, the all new 1000.1 EVOX2 is going to be a new fan favorite. Things that could not be done with the 800.1 EVOX are now on the table with this new amplifier. Adding an RLC port to make it compatible with the SounDigital Remote Level Control and being able to expand the frequency range of the amplifier are in direct response to the list of wants provided to SounDigital by their customers and retailers.

“We were up against a wall with what the old chassis was capable of, and we knew we needed to make a change,” said Jacob Brown, Director of Operations for HKI USA Inc., the US importer for SounDigital. “We kept getting asked for things the 800.1 just wasn’t capable of doing, and when the answer was always ’there isn’t enough room', we knew what the next step was going to be.” With the help of the entire SounDigital engineering team, these changes were put into effect, and the 1000.1 EVOX2 was born. 

Available in traditional SounDigital fashion, this amplifier will be available in 1 and 2 ohm configurations, which is also a twist over the 800.1. 

MSRP will be U$499.99 for both versions and is expected to be available before the end of November.

Holly Hill, Fla. – October 28, 2022 – Metra PowerSports® by Metra Electronics® will showcase a new Chasing LED Underglow Lighting Kit and a 3ft Chasing LED Whip Light designed to add brilliant lighting to UTVs and golf carts at SEMA 2022. These products install easily to provide fast and durable lighting solutions. They work with the Heise Connect Chasing Controller to allow users to control their LEDs from the palm of their hand when paired with the Heise Connect smartphone app.

3ft Chasing LED Whip Light

The MPS-CHWP-1 is designed for ATVs, UTVs, dune buggies, and other powersports applications. It is strong enough to withstand some of the most extreme off-roading environments with an IP67 rating. In addition, it is stylish yet durable, constructed with a weather-resistant polyolefin cover and a bendable polycarbonate core that is virtually unbreakable.

Chasing LED Underglow Lighting Kit

The MPS-UNDG-KT1 includes (4) 9” and (2) 28” sealed polycarbonate LED tubes, mounting hardware, a Heise Connect Chasing Controller, RF card remote, and extension cables to make installation easy. The Chasing tube layout was designed to separate the left and right sides of the vehicle so that when a pattern is selected within the app, that lighting pattern will track down each side of the vehicle with the same timing. Additionally, the turn signals are zoned so that they have independent left and right triggers.

Heise Connect Chasing Controller

This controller provides 12volt triggers for the option to turn lights red when the vehicle is braking and amber for turn signal indication. Users can choose from 170+ color-changing patterns using the Heise Connect smartphone app with DIY lighting patterns, music sync, and more.

These productswill be on display at the Las Vegas Convention Center at Metra's 2022 SEMA Show booths, November 1st-4th. The main booth will be #11139 in the North Hall, and its off-roading and powersports products will be on display at booth #60031 in the West Hall. More product details will be available at MetraPowerSports.com soon after the show.

On display will be more than a dozen different products from this new line, designed to fit numerous applications, including audio, motorcycle, marine, auto racing, powersports, solar energy storage, and more. These Lithium Iron and Lithium-ion batteries are an excellent choice for situations where the power source needs to be lightweight and compact, with a quick energy discharge. They weigh much less than other batteries while remaining long-lasting, reliable, and vibration-resistant. Their internal components are sectioned into independent cells that make them safer and prevent them from shorting out if damaged. Products on display at SEMA will include:

Lithium Iron Batteries

Shuriken's new lithium iron (LiFePO4) batteries are a great choice for providing reliable power for numerous applications.

This product line will offer a wide range of battery sizes and amperages, including one with a slim design that easily fits in confined spaces, such as behind interior panels.

Lithium-ion Batteries

The new lithium-ion batteries from Shuriken are ideal for providing reliable power for similar applications, as listed above. However, they are also designed to recharge extremely quickly, with 90% recharge in less than 6 minutes! They also have a longer shelf life during storage and operate through many more cycles than conventional batteries. They feature built-in short circuit protection and are dry cell batteries, which eliminates the risk of spills. These batteries are available in a variety of sizes, types, and amperages, including starting batteries.

Lithium Battery Chargers

Along with its line of new Lithium Series Batteries, Shuriken is introducing 3-Amp and 15-Amp chargers that keep these products fully charged and ready to perform. These reliable battery chargers are specifically designed to work with lithium technology and will recharge the power cells quickly and safely. Positive and negative battery terminal clamps are included for easy connection.

Auburn Hills, Mich. (Nov 1, 2022) – Alps Alpine North America, Inc. (“Alpine”)  is now shipping the Alpine Status HDS-990 Hi-Res Digital Media Player, HDP-D90 14-Channel Hi-Res Digital Sound Processor, and three Hi-Res Amplifiers including a Mono-Power Amplifier (HDA-M80), 5-Channel Amplifier (HDA-V90), and 4-Channel Amplifier (HDA-F60). The Alpine Status line uses trickle-down technology from the Ultra-High-Resolution AlpineF#1Status system that, when used as a complete system, achieves High-Resolution sound at a more approachable and accessible price point.

Incredible Realism

The HDS-990 is a high-performance digital media player that can reproduce music at the Hi-Res audio spec of 192kHz/24Bit, the highest quality playback via a direct USB cable connection.

The HDS-990 includes two components: a commander unit with the iconic Alpine six-chiclet design that controls various sound and music settings and a separate black box that includes a wide range of feature suites for inputs and outputs that allow for convenient integration into any type of factory or aftermarket sound system.

The commander unit can be used as a standalone music source or integrated with a factory or aftermarket head unit. With multiple digital source inputs, the HDS-990 can play a wide range of digital music file formats from MP3 to Hi-Res for flexible playback options.

System Powerhouse

The HDP-D90 is a powerful 14-channel digital sound processor. Custom-developed for Hi-Res playback, the processor has an internal sampling rate of 192kHz/64Bit and an ultra-wide audio bandwidth of 10Hz-110kHz for recording studio-level sound. A copper-plated chassis brings the signal-to-noise ratio to >110dB and minimizes noise and distortion during playback for music that is true to the source.

The HDP-D90 includes a 14-channel processor and a built-in 12-Channel Amplifier. Multiple source inputs allow for flexible system building with an option to retain a factory head unit, add an aftermarket head unit, and add the Alpine Status HDS-990 Digital Media Player. The processor can also receive music sent directly from a smartphone via Bluetooth® wireless streaming.

When paired together, the HDS-990 and HDP-D90 allow the listener to build and tune their ideal sound system. With 12-channels of amplified outputs, the HDP-D90 can be used as a standalone power source or using 10 channels of RCA output, can add Alpine Status Amplifiers for a customized system configuration, including the HDA-F60 4-Channel Amplifier, HDA-V90 5-Channel Amplifier, or HDA-M80 Mono Power Amplifier.

The Alpine Status Amplifiers were intentionally designed to provide impressive power output to the system while ensuring the purest audio performance. Design features like a high-efficiency digital circuit, copper-plated chassis, and black circuit board contribute to precise sound reproduction while Alpine-exclusive technology like a dual-negative feedback control circuit improves linearity for the most accurate sound amplification. Quick-connect power and speaker connectors make adding the Alpine Status amplifiers to a system easy.

The Alpine Status Digital Media Player, Digital Sound Processor, and Amplifiers are the next of eight more components to release from the Alpine Status line, following the HDZ-653 and HDZ-65C speakers that shipped in September, and are now available at Alpine Authorized retailers and at Preferred Online Stores.

If you need more sound you can pair two Memphis Flows together via MLINKTM technology allowing you to play music simultaneously from a single Bluetooth stream. Memphis made certain this device would withstands the rigors of the outdoors by constructing it out of high-impact rugged materials and certifying it to meet or exceed an IPX6 water resistant rating making the Memphis Flow a perfect outdoor companion on your next outing. Memphis Flow can keep the party going courtesy of the oversized battery which allows for hours of playback and can also double as a power bank to charge accessories directly from the device itself.

“We had such a huge success with our MBud AirTM True Wireless Headphones that we really wanted to come out with more personal audio accessories. Let’s face it, we aren’t always in a car, boat or side by side, but we ALWAYS want that great Memphis sound anywhere we go. With the Memphis Flow you can enjoy the high quality Memphis sound you love at the pool, beach or anywhere else you go,” said Nick LoMonaco president of Memphis Audio.
