Hi Fishy,fishyswishy said:Hey eveyone i am in the stage of looking for a new set of speakers for my auditorium. Looking for a nice set that are good for everything from plays to rock concerts. ive got about 2,000-30,00 to spend any ideas? or just any favorites out there. looking at a theatre with about 550 seats.
Our sister school is in the market for replacing their entire sound system. I met up with GBN's Facilities Manager at LDI while he was shopping. I tagged along on the Live Tour Stages and was privy to the conversations with the sales reps and professional engineers and designers. Our conclusion was the Meyer System was simply the best sounding, with JBL coming in second. The EV stuff sounded like crap to us. At GBS we have an Apogee speaker system that we love, with a few JBL's for our portable system. We have a few EV and Bose speakers that we use for monitors or with the portable system when needed.Inaki2 said:EV would be the best choice I believe, you should check out stuff such as coverage as well. EV is not that expensive and they're good speakers.
