INDIANAPOLIS (March 17, 2005) - Klipsch Audio Technologies, a leading manufacturer of high-performance loudspeakers, recently announced the grand prize winner of its "Maximum Overdrive" fall incentive sales program. With the luck of the draw, Paul Bialas of American TV in Waukesha, Wis. is now the proud owner of a copper-colored 2005 Mini Cooper.

From September 1 to December 31, 2004, 742 hardworking sales people from participating retailers all over the country sold Klipsch products to earn chances to be entered into a random drawing to win a Mini Cooper. In addition to the grand prize, the top 100 sales associates were rewarded with high-performance Klipsch ProMedia Ultra 5.1 multimedia systems.

Bialas, who has never owned a brand new car, now drives a vehicle that has been voted the most appealing compact car for three years in a row by J.D. Power & Associates. According to Bialas, he was shocked when he found out he was the winner but became overjoyed when he picked up his "new ride" at Klipsch headquarters in Indianapolis. "It's a fantastic car that looks good and rides great. I love it," he said.

Bialas has worked as an installation specialist/sales professional at American TV for the past nine years. A firm believer in Klipsch products, Bialas has an all Klipsch 7.1 system in his basement that consists of a pair of La Scalas, an RC-7 center channel, two RS-7s for side surrounds, two KL-650-THX LCRs for rear surrounds and an RSW-15 subwoofer. And that's not all, he also has a Klipsch Cinema 10 home theater system with an RSW-12 subwoofer in his living room.
