Eton representatives announced the launch of RSE - a new speaker  line,  a successor of the famous top selling RS line. Another major accent was made on a product category actively promoted by Eton – factory radio upgrade kits. These kits perfectly fit OEM locations of most VW, Audi and BMW cars and deliver significantly better sound compared to standard equipment .

First, Reese Gray, director of sales for Europe and Aaron Malin, the global trainer from Kicker (USA), presented new Kicker products and stressed on technical ideas and know-how’s that make Kicker top selling car-audio in the US. Then Aaron Malin presented his own survey on marketing strategy and selling tactics for international dealers.
Art Sound and Revolt Audio products were presented by ALCOM’s technical trainer Dmitry Domakhin.  Art Sound announced updates of existing lines as well as introducing completely new ones for 2011. While AS speaker line had a major cosmetic change, AM speaker line changed mostly from the inside. A more powerful design made these speakers truly universal and suitable for both head unit and external power amplifiers. But the main event was in the amplifier family. New Art Sound XD amplifier line sets new standards in car audio – extremely small size, extremely high output and extremely high efficiency  of full range class D make the future closer.
