So, as a project of mine, I've decided to put a sound system in my frat house's dining room. It's probably 20' x 20' and we use it alot for parties, formal events, casino nights, ect. ect. I want to make something functional as a casual system we can use to make announcements and maybe play light music over a dinner, but I definitely want kick *** bass for when we do throw a few ragers.
Anyways, I'm wondering what my best approach to this is, I'm looking at either buying the pre-fab DJ speakers, or buying my own drivers and making the enclosures myself. I'd like to keep the budget for the speakers around 300-350. I have no idea what home/pro audio brands are good, and in general I know nothing of home audio, so any help would be awesome.
