Gracias Madre

Project Overview

Gracias Madre,  a successful Mexican Vegan Restaurant in Northern California came down to LA and we were fortunate enough to be introduced by their general contractor, Ramland Construction. The owners also own the legendary vegan restaurants Café Gratitude.

Looking at the space, we determined that Community Entasys Column Array speakers would be the best selection for this space. We could mount speakers on one wall in the main Dining, and project sound 30 feet without a drop in volume. On wall subwoofers added low end warmth to the space.

Outside, on an amazing, romantic Patio, Community wall mounted CS6 speakers and landscape speakers from Episode allow sonic coverage while being able to maintain a conversation. The Episode landscape speakers look like low voltage planter lights , thus maintaining a low profile in the planters where olive trees where imported.

A Symetrix DSP processor allows wall controller and mobile app puts control at the fingertips of staff and allowed us to EQ and normalize the sound.

Security cameras from Versiton and and Wirepath 16 channel camera DVR allow event recording and remote viewing. Sound Decision also put in place the network cabling and POS wiring.

The average learning time on this system is 10 minutes or less.


Featured Products Used in Project

Symetrix DSP

Jupiter hardware runs downloadable apps.  There are over 70 to choose from for use in applications like mixing and automixing, routing, loudspeaker management, and special purpose signal processing to name a few. Target venues includes houses of worship, auditoriums, retail and hospitality establishments, sports facilities, transportation terminals, and many, many more.

LabGruppen Amplifier

The C 10:8X is an eight-channel amplifier that delivers 8 × 125 W* at 4 ohms, 8 ohms, 16 ohms or 70 Vrms; 250 W at 100 Vrms is available in bridge mode.

The C 10:8X is one of four C…X models in the C Series, each uniquely suited for a range of installed applications with relatively lower power output requirements. C…X models share most features of the original (higher power) C Series models, and they share the same compact, lightweight 2U chassis. However, the C…X models are offered in both four- and eight-channel versions, offering even greater channel density and installation flexibility. Also, because the unique benefits of Class TD® are more applicable at higher power levels, the C…X models employ a cost-efficient proprietary Class D output design. Other features unique to C…X models include a universal power supply, selectable 35 Hz high-pass filter, and built-in GPIO control facilities.
