EMMA UK & In Car FREQ
International Build Off 2018
“Team UK vs Team Germany 2018
The International Car Audio Build Off is to showcase live, the fabrications skills offered by some of the industry’s professional car audio installers, using some of the latest car audio products available.
Each five-person team are given the same car, the same products and materials, yet only 48 hours to build and tune a ‘competition standard’ Car HiFi System.”
It is with great pleasure EMMA announces the line-up for the UK Build TEAM.
Each team member has been hand selected not only for their skillset but to complement each other and work well together in the challenge ahead. As they take on the very difficult task of not only creating a full custom audio system in such a tight timeframe LIVE (on display at one of the biggest UK car event of the season), but to also make it competitive as a competition system.
As soon as the 48hr timer runs out the system will go through a full EMMA judgment procedure for both ESPL (B/R Class) & Master level Sound Quality (5000euro class). The total of each scoresheet shall be combined to make up a cumulative grand total that crowns the winning team.
The UK team consists of:
Lee Dunstan, Lee has 32 years Industry experience, 15 of which are with his own company “Platinum In Car” based in Coventry (http://www.platinumincar.co.uk)
Lee has been running a Sound Quality competition TEAM in the UK for the past 3 years with great results nationally and at the Euro Finals.
