Gday guys, Lately I've kind of been thrown into the deep end at work in regards to audio, going from hobby to job overnight. I would love a bit of insight into ideas for portable, lightweight and good sounding powered speakers. I understand that because they are powered, they may be heavy, but I am interested anyways! The speakers need to be able to reproduce speech clearly (in a perfect world the speakers would be transparent, just making the mic'd signal audible yet not really noticeable [like a booming array or anything] ) and must be able to cover an area in front of the 2 speakers that 30 people can hear. SIlly I know, but I was thinking more along the lines of powered monitors or those small bose type speakers than PA type, mainly for the size and clarity issue. Any opinions? Budget is around 1250 us.thanks a heap!!!
