    JBL SRX815P or Yamaha DXR15? Outdoor events 150 people at most.

    Hello, i would like your opinion on which speakers to buy. Mainly for Outdoor events. Most of the time 100 to 150 people. I would like to buy a pair of any of those two.
    I can get the DXR15 for $600 Each, and there is SRX815 on ebay $870 Each (refurbished).
    And which subwoofer would you recommend to pair with any of those tops.

    From the specs, it doesn't look like they are in the same class
    SRX:
    System Specification:
    - System Type: Self powered 15"", two-way, bass-reflex
    - Maximum SPL Output: 137dB
    - Frequency Range (-10dB): 36hz - 21khz
    - Frequency Response (- 3dB): 44hz - 20khz

    Amplification:
    - System Power Rating: 2000W Peak, 1500W Continuous
    DXR:
    Speaker type: 15" 2-way, Bi-amp powered speaker, Bass-reflex type
    - Frequency Range (-10dB): 49Hz - 20kHz
    - Output power: Dynamic:1100W (LF: 950W HF: 150W) / Continuous: 700W (LF: 600W HF: 100W)
    - Maximum output level (1m; on axis): 133dB SPL

    I think that particular Yamaha would be better compared to the JBL PRX line
    JBL PRX715
    Power Rating 1500 W
    Frequency Range (-10 dB) Main: 42.9 Hz - 19.5 kHz
    Maximum SPL Normal: 136 dB

    The SRX is without a doubt the better speaker but not needed here... a pair of DXR12's over single 18 subs would easily cover 100-150ppl indoors or out. And no I didn't make a mistake there with the DXR12, if you're buying subs anyway save yourself the pack space and get the 12" version.

    ok, thanks for the info.
    I will get the DXR15's, probably going to get the dual 18 subwoofer from JBL.

    I would not mix and match subs and tops. Stick with one brand for both. Also the dual 18 is going to be a pain to move.

    Agreed.. looks better and can sometimes work better particularly with powered boxes.. the DSP tuning in each box is designed to work with the other.

    Actually I find dual 18s to be easier to move everywhere except up stairs.. which I simply don't do with those things.

    The SRX 828 is a massive beast! You have to get the caster kit with it. I make sure that we don't have to carry it anywhere, we use a trailer with a ramp, it's nice because we can stack other gear on top of it and use it as a rolling cart
