Question

I'm just asking this out of curiosity. I'm not dumb enough to see if I could maybe get hooked up. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

I'm just wondering how many guys on the forum are sponsored. Maybe say who sponsors you as well to give them a bit of free publicity.

I've decided to ask the question becuase I see all these competitors from the US and Europe who get great deals on their products, if not free stuff.

Even the one's that aren't sponsored seem to have a 'special' relationship with manuf's so that they can get to test equipment before it has been released, or even before they choose to buy.

This kind of puts us at a disadvantage because I don't really know of many manufacturers up here, whereas there's a bunch in Europe and the US that regularly help out their competitors.

i think he's talking about spl cars.

it's pretty hard to get if u are canadian, only very few have got it.

if u are in the street class, forget it.

Nah.. I mean anyone. I'll admit that I mostly care about SPL cars, but it's still interesting to see what some of the SQ guys have to offer.

I have been on Factory Sponsored car audio team for about 7-8 years now. All SQ.

Started with MTX, then moved onto Xtant as they moved thier team on to the other brand.Other Canadians on that team. Tim Bailey, and Rina Beckham (Rina is still on Xtant)

I am now a proud member of the Factory DLS SQ team.

I also have current co-sponsors to the names of:

B-Quiet
StreetWires
and SVR Audio Batteries


In the past I have been co-sponsored by:

Veritas Audio
JL Audio
Dynamat
Optima
Esoteric Audio


My major playing field is in the US. It used to be you win (alot) and you'll pick up some help.
These days budgets are moving more towards extreme sports than car competitors.......


If you do get some help make sure it's with something you will stand behind. Don't take something because it's a deal or free when you know it's a POS..........

I would think it would be even harder for you canadians to get a sponsership being outside of the US. Do you have any manufacurers there?

I don't think there are any SPL companies. There are a few SQ/daily companies though.

We had a thread about them a while ago, but I can't seem to find it right now.

It shure would be nice if an SPL oriented company came along. There just might not be enough business around here to make it worthwhile though.
