Most of the time will be setup up outside but I want to be able to take them inside the home and my friend's house.

I only asked since sometimes it rains (sideways) in Florida.

Lol indeed it does. I got good back yard roof but when it gets really ugly, they need to be carry inside.

Check out the little Peavey I mentioned.

https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/PV6BT

That Peavey seems to have everything I need. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Important inputs as BT integrated and USB to connect the laptops are there. Good :D
FX, good add.  :D
Now, whats the difference on the direct out from main out? What type of connection are the 2 black above the TRS direct out? Would I be able to use another pair of speaker from those direct out TRS?

Also, do they sell TRS to XLR cable or I need adapter? Will I be leaving quality with that adapter?
Thanks guys.

Direct outs are for processing that channel, not for sending to speakers.
You have two mono channels of XLR with insert points; one stereo channel which takes a 1/8 stereo jack or two 1/4 mono jacks;  one stereo channel that takes stereo Bluetooth, two mono RCA or two mono 1/4; and one stereo channel from the USB.

You have one pair of LR main outs on 1/4 TRS.

You would need either TRS -> XLR cords, or TRS -> XLR adapters and XLR cords.

Here is an example of the cord you would need - https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/BPBQXM30

Additional (powered) speakers could simply be daisy chained off the first pair of speakers with XLR cords.

The adapter will not cost you any quality.

Are you sure you should really use 2 speakers?
What is the shape of the area you are covering and where would you be placing the speaker(s)?
My hunch is that it is a plain rectangle and the best suitable location is in 1 corner of the rectangle.
If my hunch is correct, you might get better sound with a single speaker.
If all that is correct, then you might want to consider something smaller (DSR110 or K10) on top of a small sub.

Actually is rectangle as you said but long, so I need one on each corner. I'm also takeing them to my friends house that is open area. Dont wanna do sub's so 10" or 12" won't give me t
Bass as 15". I rather have power left in case I need it in the future, who knows I may start a DJ business as a hobby and extra income. Thats why I'm looking also the mixer that I can add 2 more speakers or subs. How you actually u connect sub's on the mixer or from the speakers?

What do you think upgrading to the PV10 BT Then? Does that one have 4 regular main out?

All modern powered speakers have a pass through. You would go from mixer Main Output to speaker A input, then speaker A output to a second speaker on that channel. The same goes for subs. You can daisy chain as many as you like. Some of the speakers will also have a built in crossover so you can cut the lows from the top speakers if you're running subs.
