BRIAN’S CUS­TOM AU­DIO HAS CRE­ATED A NAME FOR IT­SELF AS A PUR­VEYOR OF HIGH-END CUS­TOM AU­DIO SYS­TEMS FOR THE WORLD’S MOST EX­CLU­SIVE CARS

Virtuozity - - In Focus -

cus­tomised, there are ripe pick­ings for a firm known for its top-of-the-lines au­dio cus­tomi­sa­tions.

The com­pany was founded in 2006 by Meghoe, an au­dio en­gi­neer, and Wes­ley To­ers Bi­jns, a me­chanic and the com­pany’s lead en­gi­neer. The pair have a deep pas­sion for cars run­ning through their blood, and for Meghoe, cre­at­ing the com­pany meant com­bin­ing that pas­sion with a love for au­dio.

“I was con­stantly tin­ker­ing with elec­tron­ics and me­chan­ics dur­ing my child­hood. When I be­gan study­ing elec­tron­ics at the in­ter­me­di­ate tech­ni­cal school at The Hague, I was al­ready con­vinced that I would be work­ing as an au­dio en­gi­neer in the fu­ture. I started work­ing at a com­pany in­stalling car ra­dios right af­ter I fin­ished school. The fact that I was im­me­di­ately able to com­bine my stud­ies with my other pas­sion, a pas­sion for cars, was truly the per­fect start,” he says.

And while that job cer­tainly taught Meghoe all the tech­niques he would re­quire to be a top-of-the-line au­to­mo­tive sound en­gi­neer, he also learnt very quickly that there were cus­tomers out there with their own ideas about how their in-car au­dio sys­tems should sound. In­deed, Meghoe found that the most dis­cern­ing cus­tomers were often not 100-per cent sat­is­fied by the stan­dard sys­tems avail­able on the mar­ket.

“Cus­tomers with the most crit­i­cal views and pas­sion­ate ideas re­luc­tantly agreed to the best stan­dard so­lu­tions most com­pa­nies for built-in car au­dio and hi-fi stores had to of­fer. I re­alised then that there was a hole in the mar­ket which could be filled by topqual­ity cus­tom car au­dio,” he says.

“This job allows me to work with dif­fer­ent peo­ple, dif­fer­ent cars and dif­fer­ent au­dio in­stal­la­tions on a daily ba­sis. Our cus­tomers challenge us reg­u­larly to de­liver the im­pos­si­ble and it is ex­actly this di­ver­sity that mo­ti­vates me.”

In­deed, the com­pany works on the most ex­clu­sive cars in the world. Tailor-made
