Located at the water’s edge in Baltimore’s historic Inner Harbor, elegant Azumi Sushi complements the city’s reputation for great seafood while fitting in perfectly with the area’s upscale vibe. The Japanese-influenced, stylish yet comfortable restaurant features a main seating area, a sushi bar in the back and a small lounge area on one side where a DJ spins house music on weekends. Its plentiful large windows, deep booths, glossy bamboo tables and low lights in the evening make Azumi Sushi an attractive venue day or night.

Challenges

The long, narrow and acoustically live space required a first-class sound system which could support the music without overwhelming the patrons’ conversations or distracting for the restaurant’s clean, modern décor.

Solution

Five Fulcrum Prophile S dual 8 inch coaxial loudspeakers handle the main space. Compact and low profile, the Prophile S 3-way, active system features Fulcrum’s advanced DSP-enhanced coaxial design which enables very wide (100° x 100°) dispersion. Its low frequency transducer delivers impressive mid-bass impact for its size. The loudspeaker’s horizontal orientation and trapezoidal shape allow it to be positioned in a variety of locations, including extremely close to ceilings, while remaining visually unobtrusive – perfect for an intimate restaurant like Azumi Sushi.

To support the DJ booth, Mike Denoe installed one recessed Fulcrum US212 dual 12 inch direct-radiating subwoofer. A baby brother to the US221; it provides similar impact and musicality, and does so from an enclosure that may be built into smaller spaces, such as Azumi’s DJ booth.
