1st DLS Philippines Open Competition Winners for car audio sound quality competition announced

A field of 15 entries competed in the 1st DLS Philippines Open Competition held last 17 July 2010 at the Tiendesitas Mall in Ortigas Center, Pasig City.  

Focusing purely on Sound Quality (SQ), the 1st DLS Philippines Open Competition required competitors to set up a standard installation package consisting of a JVC KDR-705 head unit paired with DLS amplifier CA-31, speakers RM6.2 and sub-woofer RW10.  Judging was based on how well the installation produced music which sounded like the original, without noise and distortion.

The Classic Category of the 1st DLS Philippines Open Competition was the first of its kind in the country, as participants were limited to a specific package and were not allowed to add other electronic components.  After stringent judging, the following emerged as winners in the Classic Category:  Champion – Toyota Vios owned by Rico Castillo, installed by Mickey’s Autosound; 1st runner-up – Toyota Yaris owned by Jeffrey Cristobal, installed by JC Car Audio; 2nd runner-up – Honda Fit, owned by Alexander Ong, installed by Autoline Motorsports; 3rd runner-up – Honda Jazz, owned by Rolan Sagum, installed by Rolan Car Audio; and 4th runner-up – Honda Civic, owned by Erick del Rosario, installed by Sun-X/Audio Evolution.

In the Open Category, which allowed any entry with a DLS audio set-up, the winners were: Champion – Mitsubishi Lancer EX owned by Arnel Enero; 1st runner-up - Honda Accord owned by Mark Padernal; 2nd runner-up – Honda Civic owned by Tina Perez, installed by Mickey’s; 3rd runner-up – Toyota Echo, owned by Adison Ocampo/Nesty Lim, installed by Ginza Audio Concept; and 4th runner-up – Toyota Altis owned by John Bertuldo, installed by Audiohaus.

Presented by TSL Marketing Corporation, the 1st DLS Philippines Open Competition was supervised by Peter Flodqvist, a certified international head judge for both EMMA (European Mobile Media Association) and IASCA (International Auto Sound Challenge Association) sound quality competitions.  Flodqvist, who flew in from Sweden, was assisted by Mickey Tang, head of EMMA Philippines.  

Among car audio enthusiasts, DLS is a highly-regarded brand, consistently placing in the Top 3 for the most wins in car audio championships not only in Europe but in the rest of the world.  In the last three years, DLS earned 21 first places, 13 second places, and 8 third places in the IASCA and European finals. This achievement is particularly significant, considering that DLS carries only amplifiers and speakers in its product line-up.  

Since it ventured into the car audio business in 1985, DLS has focused on developing and producing in-car speakers for music lovers.  Aside from its winning record in car audio competitions, DLS products have also won Best in Category accolades in Europe and the United States.  

In the Philippines, DLS products are exclusively distributed by TSL Marketing Corporation, which has been in the car audio industry for the past three decades.  For more information, please visit www.tslmc.com.ph,  send an email to inquiry@winterpinegroup.com or check us out in FaceBook (http://www.facebook.com/pages/dls-car-audio-philippines).
