A custom painted Fulcrum Acoustic DX8 blends in to the décor of the recently opened Surrender Nightclub at the Wynn Encore.

Las Vegas is known for its nightlife, but a growing trend is its reputation as a destination for daytime beach parties. The Wynn Encore hotel has tapped into this trend with the opening of the $67 million Beach Club adult pool and Surrender Nightclub, all housed in the same 60,000 square foot megaplex and packed with mains and subwoofers from Fulcrum Acoustic.
The megaplex, which also houses a restaurant, is meant to capture guests’ imagination and easily transition the party from day into night. The Beach Club features the best in poolside entertainment, with tiered pools, 40-foot palm trees, lounges and couches, private cabanas, and a high performance sound system featuring the Fulcrum Acoustic weather resistant Prophile M loudspeaker and the weather resistant Prophile US212 subwoofer.

Weather resistant Fulcrum Acoustic Prophile M loudspeakers are installed in a ring around the pool area at the newly opened Beach Club at the Wynn Encore.

“Aesthetics are very important in Las Vegas installs, so the interior designer insisted on compact loudspeakers that blended into their designated install locations,? explains David Gunness, chief technology officer for Fulcrum Acoustic. Gunness also leant his expertise to commission the system prior to the official opening. “The sound system also had to deliver nightclub level, high fidelity sound. Because of its natural horizontal orientation and high output to size ratio, the M is the perfect solution for the balcony fronts and sides of buildings. The US212s were compact enough to be hidden in concrete recesses that fit within the smooth lines of the architectural features.?

Fulcrum’s Prophile M loudspeaker is so versatile that a pair of them is used as a mobile DJ monitor in the pool area.

A series of Fulcrum Acoustic Prophile L loudspeakers provide sound reinforcement in the recently opened Surrender Nightclub at the Wynn Encore.

Indoors, the Surrender Nightclub occupies a 5,000 square foot space that can be opened to integrate with the Beach Club. The club features a full complement of the Fulcrum Acoustic Prophile product line, specially created with aesthetics and performance in mind. “In the Surrender Nightclub, the L loudspeakers provide the sound levels needed in a club of this type without overwhelming the fine architectural elements,? says Gunness. “And just three US221 subwoofers provide a bonafide dance club experience while occupying very little floor space.?

In addition to the pool and nightclub, Fulcrum Acoustic products are also installed at XS nightclub in the Wynn Encore. John Lyons Systems, an award-winning design/build firm with a presence in Los Angeles and Las Vegas, was the sound and lighting contractor for the new entertainment megaplex as well as for XS.
