Competitors eagerly entered in the Sound Quality League format to assess their vehicles and systems against MECA reference tracks evaluated by trained MECA judges with more than 25 years combined judging experience. Competitors are judged in classes with similarly designed competitors' vehicles, based on the complexity of the sound system installation.

From the simple to the elaborately complex and unique audio installations competed in Install Quality and the vehicles with the best installation qualities, especially regarding safety and appearance won the Installation Quality awards.

Meticulously cleaned show cars as well as daily drivers competed in Show & Shine to be judged on their vehicles’ cleanliness and attention to detail. While Ride the Light competitors were evaluated on their best interior or exterior lighting displays.
