Fulcrum Acoustic brings durable performance to sky lounge18 October 2017
SOHY Sky Lounge & Dining, located atop downtown Saigon’s Centec Tower, has been fitted with a Fulcrum Acoustic loudspeaker by Saigon-based integrator DesignLive Technologies to elevate the high-end sky lounge concept.
SOHY includes an indoor/outdoor Sky Lounge, Champagne Garden, Star Dining Room and Zero Gravity Cigar Room.

SOHY required powerful yet compact, loudspeakers with the flexibility to support vocal stage shows, instrumental performances, and headliner DJs without detracting from the club’s design aesthetic. Accurate pattern control was also critical to keep sound from reflecting off stone, glass and aluminium finishes, and from spilling over into a five-star, high-rise hotel next door.
Additionally the loudspeakers needed to be extremely durable and weather resistant to withstand Saigon’s challenging environment of alternating phases of sweltering heat and tropical thunderstorms.
“One of our proposal’s big advantages was that Fulcrum Acoustic’s compact loudspeakers could provide high-fidelity, high-powered audio while easily integrating into SOHY’s very limited interior design provisions,” explained DesignLive Technologies owner Phu Tran Pham.”21 Fulcrum Prophile P 8in coaxial speakers and 29 pole-mounted, weather-resistant DX896-WR dual 8in speakers provide even coverage, focusing immersive sound inward to the venue and away from reflective architectural surfaces and neighbouring structures.”
Fulcrum WR enclosures provide superior weather resistance in significantly lighter-weight packages, and feature triple-plated grilles and stainless steel mounting hardware.
“Fulcrum’s extremely powerful but deceptively small VLF Install Sub series installation subwoofers allowed us to implement the 15 subs EASE modelling called for to provide club-worthy low-frequency extension,” continued Phu Tran Pham. “Fulcrum also shared their extensive experience with nightclub systems to provide points of reference for our design which helped SOHY raise the bar with their new venue branded as the top luxury sky lounge in Vietnam.”
