If you're not in a big hurry to spend your money keep a watch on the "deal of the day" with the major on line retailers.

Right now look here at Sweetwater:

EV ZLX-15 for $359 ea, JBL PRX412M for $404 ea, even Peavey PVx 15 for $224 ea. But some of the powered speaker deals are again your best bang for the buck. About a month ago there were some Alto powered box a few of us which we had bought just because they were such a great price.

One constant here is people coming in with limited budget and larger aspirations.  There is no magic bullet that combines loud, sound quality, small/light, reliable, and low cost.  When that gets pointed out there is invariably resistance.  People are attached to marketing hype.  Either to size for the price like some cheap 15" plastic boxes.  Or some inference of superior technology like the things masquerading as "line sources".  Everyone has a friend who reads all the Musician's Friend and Guitar Center flyers and "knows all about this stuff".
Some good advice being doled out here, like using just one DXR15.  That unfortunately flies in the face of conventional wisdom.  But conventional wisdom is a term coined by economist John Kenneth Gallbraith for people who adhere to past understandings as if they were a religion, obfuscating with their special insider knowledge to maintain their aura of expertise.
