    If we're talking to buy, then absolutely no chance. Unless they're used and i wouldn't reccommend paying that for used powered speakers unless you were absolutely sure about their intergrity. Sorry to bust your dreams, but here's a little quantitative data in $ US:

    1 JBL 2-way powered 15" - $495 (cheapest model)
    1 Mackie S215 - $579 (also cheapest model)

    But if you want my opinion on powered speakers, in that wonderful parallel universe where you can buy things with paperclips, then I'd tell you that EAW makes a mean powered speaker. JBL EONs aren't bad, but I hate the mackies. Just some bad experiences with those. I'm sure others can chime in though.

    The first question that needs answering is what are you doing sound for? A small coffee house, living room, gymnasium?

    Within your budget a pair of Tapco S6 active monitors are available...about $ 399.00 a pair. They are a 5 1/2" 2-way bi-amped at 165w.

    For larger venues about the best you can do is the DLS 15P from American Audio, these are 15" 2-ways bi-amped at over 300w. They sell for $ 299.99 each.
