You can't power your way to clarity in a highly reverbant room like this, the only two solutions that work are (lots of)room treatments or multiple speakers that are only just loud enough to be heard.

The audience zone is about 18m deep and 9m wide. Someone suggested we look at a column array (as proper line array is above our budget) and I've been intrigued, especially with HK now bringing out the 15"  elements sub.

I was wondering if anyone has done a comparison between the options, as obviously not everything is readable off of a spec sheet.

Have a look at the Danley column speakers.  The vertical pattern control is outstanding. Itís a wide horizontal pattern so it lends itself better to a center fill, at least in your situation (I think).  Model it in Danleyís prediction software. 

Renkus-Heinz also has good solutions but itís steering, and likely pretty expensive.

Thanks. I'll definitely have a look at those. I guess I should also mention I'm in South Africa and not all the makes/models are available here.

I was just reading up about the dbTechnology ingenia series which is also pretty cool.

It looks like Danley has distribution in South Africa.  Iím sure Renkus-Heinz does also.

I have used the Danley SBH10 and SBH20 and they are excellent sounding speakers with very good vertical pattern control.
They are not your conventional designed column speakers!
They won't fix the acoustic problem with your room but will sound better at a distance than most other speakers.
