October 6, 2022 -- The 25th Anniversary dB Drag Racing World Finals, presented by Deaf Bonce, took place at the Owensboro Kentucky Convention Center during the weekend of October 1-2, 2022. The event was packed with non-stop competition all weekend long. Spectators were on site to watch in person and the event was Live Streamed on YouTube with thousands of viewers watching from around the world.

Over $10,000 in prizes were given away during the raffles all weekend. Competitors drove long distances to compete, and some came as far as California, Western Canada, Maine, Texas, and Minnesota. A few competitors and spectators flew in from Belgium, Greece, Brazil, and Germany to take part in the World Finals. All World Finalists received commemorative World Finals gear including a Duffel Bag sponsored by Crossfire, Jersey, Decal, Cap, Banner, Plaque, and other swag.

In addition to the swag, a Ground Zero Audio and SounDigital hospitality suite were open all weekend, and lunch was provided Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday night a competitor party and BBQ, sponsored by Ground Zero and SounDigital took place at a local brewery. The competitors got a chance to hang out, eat dinner, and mingle with some of the old-school car stereo guys in attendance at the Old School Meet-Up sponsored by Directronix.

The competition was fierce with Four World Records established at the event. The most notable World Record was established in the Extreme Class. Team Soundcheck scored a 185.2 dB and then backed it up with a 185.4 dB, making the new world record 185.2 dB. The score of 185.4 dB makes this the LOUDEST certified dB Drag Racing score in the WORLD. This is amazing and we want to congratulate the entire Soundcheck team for putting up such a huge score!

In addition to the Extreme record, Team Aintloud Sam established a record of 152 dB in Street Stock 1K.  Team Directronix Dan beat his old record establishing a new record of 172.6 dB in Super Street NW. There was an exciting run in Super Street X and Team Crossfire Donteay established a new record of 167.8 dB.

Trophies for the event were sponsored by Sundown Audio.  First through Third Place winners in 24 classes of the competition received an awesome 4 post trophy with first place checking in over 6 feet tall!

First-place winners will receive custom championship rings sponsored by Incriminator Audio. The winner has their choice of silver or silver with gold accents. The rings are custom-made and embossed with the competitor’s name and format of competition won.

The points leaders were: Moses Martinez for dB Drag Racing / Bass Race / Freestyle, Julius Mack Johnson III for Psychlone, and Team FX Jimbo for Top Dog.

The dBDRA recognized several teams and individuals for their contribution to growing the sport of dB Drag Racing. Moses Martinez was awarded Competitor of the Year for 2022.

Oklahoma City, Okla., October 12, 2018 -- DD Audio’s continuing growth was on vibrant display at the 2018 dB Drag Racing Association European Championship Finals in Montichiary, Italy and with so many competitors using DD Audio products, Company Owner Jassa Langford and International Sales Manager Charn Langford saw an opportunity that couldn’t be denied.

As Charn Langford put it, the decision for DD Audio was two-fold: “First, there’s the education aspect. Every competition is different. That’s true at home, and it’s especially true on other continents. We think it’s important to see the vehicles, see how our equipment is going into the builds and how everything fairs when being pushed to the extreme. Watching these contenders exceed the limitations teaches us a lot and helps us improve of our products across the board. And second, of course, we want to be there to show our support. We keep an eye on the leaderboards. We recognize that more and more competitors are choosing DD Audio for their builds, and we’re happy to see so many of them at the top. So we wanted to show our full support in person. I was really thrilled when I found myself helping the crews with recones. It was a great way to help out and get to know everyone.”

DD Audio had three officially affiliated teams in the Euro Finals. Congratulations to Elvis Häggblom and Lorens Wastesson of LW Audio ! Elvis came in second place at the dB Drag Racing Super Street No Wall. Lorens (who sacrificed two windshields to the Bass Gods) came in third place at the dB Drag Racing Super Street X and fifth place in the Bass Race 105.0 to 159.9. And a very special congratulations to dB Devils Makku Skantz and Jussi Takala! With their Fiat Panda, boasting two Z3 - 18” subs, the dB Devils not only came in FIRST PLACE for the dB Drag Super Street 1-2, they set a NEW WORLD RECORD! In addition to the affiliated teams, Charn and Jassa got to meet many more competitors whose builds prominently featured DD Audio. Italian Team Progettare HiFi’s Fabio Brembilla earned second place in the Extreme No Limit using DD’s 9515’s.

Another friendly DD fan and contender was Ruszkai Milan of Hungary, whose single Z3 - 12” helped him earn third place in the Street Stock 1k. Other DD equipment users who placed in top five of their classes included Team Tr Acoustic, Vlassopoulos of Team Vedouris, Stavros Ventouris and Christoffer Carlmark. Carlmark made an astounding impression as a first time finalist with his single Z3, coming in 4th place in the dB Drag Street Stock 2k and 5th place in the Bass Race 130.0 to 139.9. While this event was a competition, it wasn’t without some glamourous demo builds. At the DD Audio booth Alen Hedzic showed off his stunning Opel Astra with four 9915a ESP Subs and one Z2c. Eddy Shabuku’s potent VW Golf, on display at the SoundDigital booth was rocking eight 9915s along with four VO-W8s and two VO-B1s in each door.

Upon their return, Jassa said, “the builds were really something, but the competitors, builders, fans-- they’re what made it a truly unique experience.”

“And if all that wasn’t enough,” Charn added, “We found ourselves at the oldest Craft Brewery in Italy-- White Dog Brewery --and there we met the owner, who was originally from our home-state of Oklahoma! How cool is that!”

DD Audio would like to thank all the mentioned parties and many more who Jassa and Charn encountered in their journey.
