I dont want you to give numbers on the speakers.  I want you to say I need 90db SPL down to 32hz at 80 meters or something like that.  "Balls loud" is very subjective.  My balls are quite sensitive.

As for quantifying - it doesn't need to be balls loud 250ft away. Just has to be heard clearly.

Dave...

There are still factors to be considered regarding performance.

Is there any significant ambient sound?  Any proximity to white noise from transportation corridors?  How about reflections/slap back off of surrounding buildings?

"Heard clearly" can be iffy when any of the above issues are in play.

Naturally I'm familiar with the KF series because there's a ton of it in my part of the country. What else is out there? There's one local dude who uses community SLS960 boxes that I've worked with her once or twice, but I never really checked their  intelligibility at a distance. 

 Let's say the length of a football field is my goal. What's out there, new or used?   Bonus points if boxes are less than 120 pounds. 

 Events such as "picnic in the park" which is put on by the bank and is free downtown on Tuesdays. That style event   
Yorkville TX8/9s combination works well for me.

Hey, I've done her. It wasn't "pretty"   :D

Dave,

I've taken to taking a 'best guess' approach for these general type questions.

Hoping to direct the thread toward a more suitable solution because we've taken some 'pot-shots' at what OP is looking for.

Best guess? OS80. It is outdoor rated... wait, scratch that. I was thinking installed because requirements are vague.

SM80 then instead for portable. It's going to hold up over distance better than any (most?) 2/3-way trap boxes. It will get your vocal range and that is all that seems to be needed. It will be heard 250ft away easily.

Just looking for ideas.  I'm happy to look up specs for boxes where I lack familiarity.

I currently have (4) Srx725 boxes over (4) srx728 subs.  Just worried that the sound will lack detail beyond 125ft ish.   I haven't had a Chance to use all 4 tops at once - usually it's 2 smaller systems. 

As for quantifying - it doesn't need to be balls loud 250ft away. Just has to be heard clearly.

It's not specifically what you asked for (as in a new type of box) - but could you bring all 4 tops and do delays?  Do you have stand alone processing for each of the 2 smaller systems?

This is where I was heading in my reply (#2) above.

Fulcrum Acoustic AH96 or AH65 depending on dispersion required. 

A football field is 300', so if you lose 6 db per doubling, you will lose around 40 db at 300' vs the 1M rating. That's not taking into account wind or hf absorption loss.
