Funktion-One and its distributor for Mexico, Loto Audio, have teamed up to complete the first stage of a project at Mamitas Beach Club in Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo.
The owners of the club called on the supplier after they visited several other beach venues in Ibiza.
Ramon Salazar of Loto Audio explained: “We started to try and make contact with the owner over a year ago because this is the best and most famous beach club in Mexico. When we found him, it turned out that he was also looking for us – the Funktion-One distributor for Mexico. He went to some beach resorts in Ibiza where he experienced that Funktion-One sound and he was amazed. In that moment, the venue and the owner committed to a new, extensive project of remodelling and growing Mamitas.”
Loto Audio specified a system comprising four Funktion-One Resolution 4 speakers and two F221 double-21in bass enclosures for the main beachfront area of Mamitas, and pairs of F1201 speakers at the poolside and for DJ monitors.
Amplification comes from Funktion-One/MC2 E25, E30 and E100 amplifiers, with control from a Funktion-One/XTA X04 loudspeaker management system. All of the sound equipment was treated to withstand the environmental challenges.
The installation was handled by local installer, Plug In Audiovisual, and all cabling was supplied and managed by Sound Logic Cable.
Salazar added: “Mamitas Beach Club hosts various high-profile events, including the BPM Festival, Beach Soccer Worldwide Riviera Maya Cup, Riviera Maya Jazz Festival, Heineken Winter beach, DJ Fest, Corona SunSets Music Festival, Corona Elements, to name a few.
“They used to have another PA from a well-known manufacturer. Compared to the new Funktion-One system, the difference was really big - everyone was amazed.”
With the first stage of the Mamitas Beach Club project complete, attention now turns to the addition of another pool area, a steak restaurant, lounge area and a champagne room. The full venue, which will have Funktion-One sound throughout, is scheduled to be open later this year.
