JBL Car Audio Tunefest Gathered Car Audio Enthusiasts And Installers

The first-ever JBL Car Audio Tunefest was a (pardon the pun) a resounding success as it gathered car audio enthusiasts and the country’s leading installers. It also showcased the best in-car JBL setups.

For those participating in the JBL Car Audio Competition, the “sound off” was the product of a nearly two-month journey for various JBL installers and car owners. In total 15 competition entries across three categories: Stadium that featured the premium JBL line; Open Stage that cut across all JBL product lines, and Sound & Style, a special category that spotlight the Club and ClubSQ range and split points between audio performance and the car’s aesthetic styling.

In addition to the official categories, three special awards were also given out. These were the People’s Choice Award that encouraged the involvement of the event attendees, as they listened to the audio set-ups and submitted their preferences via QR code, the Mayor’s Choice Award, chosen and presented by Rocco Zamora, on behalf of San Juan City Mayor Francis Zamora, and a Special Style Award chosen from among the car clubs and attendees that joined the event.

The car audio entries were judged on-site by an esteemed roster of judges that were trained under the European Mobile Music Association (EMMA), namely Adison De Ocampo, Bong Matias, Dong Matias, Arvin Ramos, Martin De Costa, and Peter Gaw. Style awards were selected and judged by Bryan Revilla of Manila Street Chronicles, Jonathan Chio of Bumper 2 Bumper, and Kevin Carlos of Stance Pilipinas / Manila Fitted.

Aside from the car audio competition, the JBL Car Audio Tunefest gathered various car clubs such as Grupo Toyota, Miata Club of the Philippines, Nissan Kicks e-Power Club, FJ Cruiser Club of the Philippines, Buzzhype Motorsport, BanaweBoy, EverSince Street Club, and many more.

The JBL Car Audio Tunefest was also supported by the country’s leading car manufacturers: BMW, BYD, Changan, Chery, Ford, GAC Motor, Honda, Hyundai, Jeep, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mitsubishi Motors, Nissan, and Subaru.

Attendees were given the chance to listen to the first JBL Arena set-up that was installed by JC Car Audio into Franz Gaw’s Toyota GR Yaris. MSC also introduced its Porsche Cayenne off-road build, fitted with a full JBL ClubSQ system and the JBL Basspro Go portable subwoofer.
