    Default Mobile DJ Speakers for under $1000?

    Okay so me and my friend have hosted a few big club events but we really didn't enjoy working with them and after this last event we threw this weekend we're looking to buy some PA speakers or something now that we have about $900 bucks saved up. my friend already has some $500 sub that we can also use in conjunction to the system so im just wondering from all you audiophiles think what direction i should be looking for when it comes to sound

    I've heard some pretty good things about the Mackie Thumps.

    I have Thumps at home. They're good "budget" speaker, but they are not great speakers. I think I got mine price matched from for 580.00 for the pair. For a house party they do the job....but if I had 900.00 and some subs I'd go another route.

    What subs do you have?? Are they powered. Do you have an amp. Are you looking for powered speakers.

    I've got behringer euro live b412dsp active 600 watt , speakers work very well for mobile purposes. They will do the job easily. Minus point, they are a bit heavy. But they have a new range now, must be lighter.

    I use them with my cerwin vega 18 inch active sub and, they will easily do a party with 200 to 300 people

    I would definitely check them out

    B-52 Matrix-1000 V2 700W Active 3-Piece Speaker System

    Besides the Thumps (which I've been told don't get very loud, but otherwise are a great option) this is one of the most recommended "inexpensive" setups. It has everything you need to start, and I'd take a look at some reviews around.

    I've had great results from powered JBL EON 15's...

    I just checked and saw this on Craigslist today..

    "2 x JBL EON 515 PA LOUDSPEAKERS - $999"

    Not sure what type of sub you have, but 2 EON 15's with a sub should pound quite nicely.

    I've had my eyes on the QSC K10's or K12s. Excellent reviews all around, a little above your budget though

    The B 52 Matrix can get LOUD.

    I have one TH 15 A Thump.

    It is a great value. But cannot get that loud. It sufficed for a 60 or so person dance party I threw.

    I use a pair of powered harbinger 15"s with a Gemini sub. I got those harbingers for like $200 each at GC before using a coupon. They work awesome for their price. They don't weigh too much either.

    My buddy had the Mackie Thumps, but hated them. Ended up returning them and buying a pair of Yamaha S115.
