Showcasing all that Miami has to offer-from accommodationsto attractions and a vibrant nightlife, South Beach has it all, including the new Pinkroom with itsluxury, attention to fashionable detail, and a keen focus on the sound and light experience. Entertainment is a key element of the venue, and to ensure robust sound-be it a DJ or a live band-Pinkroom management insisted that the room be outfitted with a versatile sound system capable of delivering excellent music reproduction with plenty of power. They found exactly what they were looking for with D.A.S. Audio.
Miami-based Paradise Production Services, a design/build firm with a focus on commercial installations such as nightclubs, restaurants, and concert venues, was contracted to handle Pinkroom's sound system design and installation. Carlos Henao, the firm's owner, discussed his reasons for selecting D.A.S. Audio's Variant and Aero Series 2 loudspeaker systems.
"Pinkroom is brand new," states Henao, "and the sound system's ability to blend inconspicuously with the room's décor was every bit as important as its ability to deliver superior audio quality. Entertainment is primarily DJ focused, but live music performance is planned for special occasions. These conditions led us to deploy line array technology, but the system had to be relatively compact and as unobtrusive as possible. D.A.S. Audio's Variant Installation Line Array products were the perfect match."
With the system approved by Pinkroom management, Henao and his crew proceeded to install a combination of ten D.A.S. Audio Variant 112A in two 3 unit clusters at the stage area and two 2 unit clusters at the far end of the room. Six D.A.S. LX-218A powered subwoofers provide the impressive low end needed in the venue. Four LX-218Areside in a specially designed area beneath the stage while the far ends of the stage area each have a single LX-218A placed into recessed cubicles. Another six Variant 25A powered mid-high array elements in the VIP areas and front entrance.
"Pinkroom is a rather intimate type of environment", explains Henao. "Management wanted good, solid SPL levels, but not so loud that it interfered with the ability to communicate with the people right around you. The D.A.S. Variant Series products are designed for the install market and are very well suited for use in this type of venue. This entire sound system is self-powered, so we didn't have the burden of finding space to house any power amps. When space is at a premium, this is a very important consideration."
Carlos Garcia, one of Pinkroom's owners, offered his comments. "We couldn't be happier. Since our grand opening,we've received scores of compliments on the sound from our customers and I'm particularly pleased with the system's ability to blend into the décor of the room.There's plenty of sound to fill the room, but not so loud that you find yourself shouting in order to be heard. Paradise Productions has been very responsive to our concerns and, as we expand our operations, I have every intention of having them design the sound system for our next location, which means we'll be using D.A.S. again."
