What kind of budget? Are you going to be dancing? Think off the floor.
I love to dance, but tearing up 5-10K speaker. Dancing is one thing, partying is another. Ones off the floor, ones not.. Ones Audiofile, ones entertainment.
Seas use to be VERY popular, around a dance floor. They had that tight techno, ability. 6-8-10" drivers,(metric) I use to be amazed how clear, the music was EVERYWHERE. Does that sound right.. It was always overhead, pointed at a dance stage. The DJ was in his little sound dampened snug, spinnin’ vinyl..
Dance. Dance, Dance.... Tap Tap, Samba!
We use to do a harvest party, Halloween! Mercy. My gear room was off limits, the speakers were in the shop
