Colada Mix (Coconut Grove, Fla.)
Date Opened: November 2010
Designer/Acoustician: Owner Roland Alvarez
Controller: Pro Tools|HD, Sonic Studio HD
Monitors:Westlake BBSM-8, Bryston powering, custom-made Yamaha NS-10 near-fields
At-a-Glance: Acoustic treatments were made by RPG, ATS Acoustics and the rest by owner and his nephew who is studying at Full Sail. The diffusor cloud above the console is a drop ceiling with about a 20-degree angle. They inserted some custom wood diffusors that were inspired by others Alvarez had seen, with the main difference being that he used mahogany blocks to match the console's sides and used slightly smaller dimensions to hang from the 2x2-foot drop-ceiling holes. RPG skylines and lights complete the look.
