In September 2010, professional audio judges from MECA (Mobile Electronics Competition Association) picked the Cruze audio system over its major competitors. MECA judges used three evaluations: a sound-pressure test to measure sound volume, real-time analysis to measure audio fidelity, and the judges’ evaluations of the listening experience. The Cruze won two of the three evaluations, earning the highest rating in the MECA Sound Quality League competition format.
