Looking for Advice...
« on: April 10, 2012, 08:02:32 pm »

Hello, I am looking for a monitor recommendation for a patio install that needs to fill about 1000- 1600 sq ft outdoors. I should also mention that this space in immediately next to a noisy spot on the Colorado River where loud boats and vacationers are passing consistently. I am currently using an Emotiva UPA-2 amp to power a pair of Axiom Algonquins. These however are just not cutting it!

I am looking for a reasonably priced speaker that will hold up to some exposure to the elements while giving me the needed SPL at a respectable sound quality for this environment. Here are a couple of possibilities I have looked at thus far but am still unsure whether or not these will give me the performance I am looking for:

JBL Control 29AV-1
JBL JRX112MI <== Not sure how these would do outdoors

Any advice, tips, recommendations wold be GREATLY appreciated as I have been going around in circle on this decision for months now. I just want to get it right! Thank you.

I have an install with around twenty JBL Control 30s driven by a rack of Crown CTs2000 and steered with a BSS Blu100 in an outdoor military simulation and it kick some serious butt.  I'd check those out.
