Need suggestion for passive speaker
« on: July 29, 2020, 12:06:15 am »

Looking for suggestions for a passive speaker, flyable, with a wide (100-120 deg) dispersion for a small church. Very limited budget, spoken word, high open ceiling. I could build something but I would rather find a current product, and I haven't kept up with the latest offerings.

Check out VUE audiotechnik. Not sure about your horizontal requirement, though.  The i series will be pretty wide due to the dome tweet, but that of course limits SPL.

Fulcrum CX1226 or DX1226.  120x60, and sounds great.

FBT Vertus would be great.  I can arrange a demo for you Dwayne.

Plenty passive speakers to choose from. One thing you didn't mention, what is your "Very limited budget"? Give us an idea and we'll go from there.
I myself would go with central hang of 2 speakers with 60-90 dispersion. Lots of cheap options for new or used available.

EAW KF300's are $500/pair right now. Have proper fly hardware and sound great.

Thanks to everyone. I have given the info to the people at the church, and they will stare at the numbers and probably go to GC and buy whatever the sales guy can fit into their budget. Hopefully they will realize they need to spend a little more than they thought, but this is a very small congregation in a poor part of the city so I am not optimistic.

What's the budget?
