Emerging from the sound championships in their home countries, again all national first or second placed EMMA competiors were invitet to compete.
Among those who took the challenge to crank up for the international EMMA finals were again only the most professionally and virtuosly equipped car media masterpieces with impressively elegant audiophile equipment. All of them were be sound- and install-checked by the international team of EMMA judges in order to determine the best sound cars of Europe.
The championship again came along with an eclectic show and entertainment program, presenting all fun and excitement facets of this gigantic sound off spectacle including a fun and music filled Saturday Night Party at an old historic brewery in the middle of Salzburg.

And here are the most important winners of the event: the Champions and Vice-Champions among the participants of this year’s EMMA Eurofinals. Those kings of car media were crowned at the award ceremony on Sunday afternoon, applauded by a huge audience. Most of the participant nations took home a nice bunch of trophies. In ESPL Slovenia is a real power with five Trophies far away from all others, a small but very loud Nation. Also the hosting Country, Austria had also a big reason to celebrate because two of their team became European Champion in SQ. Team Italy/San Marino, Ukraine and Russia were strong but the Germans are again the No.1 in SQ with together 10 Trophies. Multi Media indeed is a Russian issue. Their team won all theree Championship titles this time. Brand new and adapted from the Asian EMMA affiliates was the first ever competition in ESQL, a format where the SQ judging is made from outside the car and presented with a show to the audience. The winning team from Finalnd was supported by Dong Ming from China who presented a great Gangnam Style performance around the car.
The ceremony was like always a amazing show with lots of emotions and set the last point of the days of Salzburg. A great place to meet and the discussion already started to host the Kick Off for 2014 at the Automesse.
