A pair of 10" or 12" tops with even a single sub will always sound better(more bass and clearer mids) than a pair of 15's on sticks.
I'm thinking of upgrading our mediocre speakers (Behringer) for something a little better. What we have isn't horrible, but I'd like to upgrade the quality of the sound, since we tend to push the Behringers and I think we need more headroom.I'm hoping to spend in the $1500-$2000 range and I'm trying to decide if I'd be better getting 2 solid speakers like PRX's or K10/12's, or spread the $ out by getting a a pair of $500 speakers (roughly) and a matching sub. We use SM58's so our mics are okay.We're a 4 piece rock band and we play the normal pubs, bars, outdoor events, etc... usually in the 50-200 person range depending on the venue. We generally run the vocals, bass, guitars, and drums through the system, although the extent to which depends on the venue, as would be expected.My goal is to get a little more volume for larger outdoor events, and most importantly more clarity in the sound (particularly for the vocals).I've listened to both levels of speakers and the sound quality is a very obvious difference, but I haven't been able to listen to a band through both setups.
Yamaha DXS12 sub. $700 I've done rooms as big as 50 x100 with this(not at super high volumes, mind you, but with 4-5 piece rock bands at good volumes) and a pair of DXR10s at $600 ea. That's one system inside your budget that will work and will sound good. As far as outdoor events, unless you are in a confined area, like a deck behind a bar or someone's small backyard, you will probably not be able to put together a system with your budget that is going to be very loud outside.
