The new Joia Beach Restaurant & Beach Club, located on a hidden beach oasis at the west side of Miami’s Jungle Island and offering an outdoor dining environment, is outfitted with a sound system incorporating WR, Quantum, Altea, and Factor 8 loudspeakers from DAS Audio.
Consisting of a main restaurant, a front of house station for the DJ, and an exterior bar area, the sound approach at Joia Beach Restaurant & Beach Club was designed and implemented by John Fiorito, DAS Audio of America’s lead design and installation manager for nightlife and hospitality.
“The entire venue has its own media server for its regular source of music,” Fiorito explains. “This capability is augmented by a DJ booth that has the capability to feed the primary restaurant system an alternate music source. In the main restaurant area, we deployed a combination of 10 DAS Quantum Q-43-T full-range loudspeaker enclosures configured in stereo, which are augmented by six Quantum Q-10 subwoofers in mono. This combination ensures high fidelity and true stereo imaging with solid low end punch that covers the area with rich, detailed sound.”
Meanwhile, the front of house system for the DJ is configured as mono point source, utilizing four DAS WR-8826 2-way point source enclosures augmented by four DAS WR-151S subwoofers. This station also has the capability to feed an alternate music source to the restaurant area by way of an easy connection using a stereo mini cable.
“For the exterior bar area, we installed four DAS Factor 8 two-way vented loudspeakers in a mono configuration along with a DAS Altea-412A 2-way powered point source enclosure that serves as the DJ monitor,” Fiorito adds.
The DAS Audio sound reinforcement system at Joia Beach Restaurant & Beach Club was installed during February, with marketing manager Emma Batchelder stating, “Music is our heartbeat at Joia Beach, and DAS Audio has exceeded our expectations on every level, which is why we continue to work together on projects past, present, and future. We can’t wait to open our doors to Miami and share a product that both Joia Beach and DAS Audio can be incredibly proud of.”
