Serious about sound
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
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
