best cheap dj/band speakers
« on: July 22, 2017, 09:16:26 am »

is there such a thing as CHEAP DJ speakers designed to be BUILT LIKE A TANK and designed to be super LOUD and are known for never breaking down and to be very servicable or repairable... with just very BASIC OK sound quality... again im wondering if there is such a thing as cheap speakers with ironclad BUILD QUALITY, designed to go LOUD and just have OK CLARITY AND FIDELITY... very basic "good enough" sound quality not necessarily audiophile level quality, just something that is truly well made and very durable, long lasting, servicable...and still cheap... im pretty sure youre paying for sound quality on the more expensive lines and not necessarily durability... but correct me if im wrong... i want something that is truly built correctly not half assed... but still cheap due to sacrificing SOUND QUALITY to where its just ok and acceptable... im pretty convinced that massive increases in price only account for miniscule and diminishing improvements in sound quality anyway...

if im wrong and the super expensive brands and product lines are so expensive due to sound quality AS WELL AS build quality... please school me on cheaper brands that still maintain some of this good build quality

for example ive heard behrigner eurolives can "die on you any time"... i want something with solid solder connections, readily available replacement parts for tweeters, horns etc... decentncase, but OK DECENT sound quality...

think of it like using those 2006 480p digital cameras after 720-1080p hd tvs came out in 2007-8... people bitch and complain BUT YOU CAN STILL SEE CLEARLY WHAT IS HAPPENING ON SCREEN... HOWEVER... the 1990s seinfeld sitcom grainy film cameras.. or like the grainy security camera shot of a criminal on the news.. THATS TAKING IT TOO FAR AND I DONT WANT THAT BAD QUALITY... i just want ok quality where you can make out the song just fine and any improvements in quality range from unnecessary to marginal to non noticable to impress audio snobs

The most important part of a sound system?  The speakers.  The first thing cut when making cheap speakers?  Longevity.

Note enough information to give a real answer, because you need to define what 'cheap' means to you.

What is your budget per speaker?
