    Speakers for my Fraternity House

    I know this is a car audio forum, but I figured yalls knowledge wasn't necessarily limmited to car audio. So, I'm not on a strict budget but lets keep things reasonable. I was thinking a 2-4 speaker system, I have no amp to go off of but I was thinking around 1000 wats per speaker. Feel free to give any input. It's a 1000 square foot room if that helps at all. Thanks in advance

    Front speakers: Diamond D6 comp
    Rear speakers: Diamond D6 coax
    Speaker amp: Alpine 100x4
    Subs: 2 12' Diamond D9s
    Amps: 2 Diamond D61000.1; one on each sub

    check out www.htfr.com it's technically a record store but they're having some killer deals on active (powered) monitors and monitor/amp combos. they're a big supplier of dj equipment so everything they sell will get very loud. for 1000 square feet i'd look to the 350-500w range and add a sub if you typically pack out the place.

    sub amp - PG xs2200

    JTR speakers. Get a pair of Triple 12LF's.

    The above suggestion is good as well, an active powered DJ type speaker.

    one problem with the triple 12lf's. they're $1500 a piece. that's a big f-up when someone spills beer on it...

    Re: Speakers for my Fraternity House

    I appreciate the suggestion SeaNile but I'm not to sure that I can spend 1500 on speakers alone, especially since I still have to buy the amp.

    Yeah well that is indeed the intention... but I think we'll start with two for now and progress to four if need be... I'm thinking a minimum of 2000 wats for sure though

    Re: Speakers for my Fraternity House

    2k watts in pro audio is a lot different than 2k in car audio... remember that. we had 2k at the last party we threw and even with over 200 people there it was almost deafening. honestly i think 1000 with a powered sub would be more than sufficient. also parts express sells awesome equipment. i'd definitely consider that.

    Re: Speakers for my Fraternity House

    Have you ever heard a 4kW home setup?

    Have you budgeted for the extra 220VAC line you'll have to run to provide that kind of current?

    Feel free to give any input.
    Think smaller...think more efficient.

    If it were me, I'd be using Altec 811 or 511 horns with compression drivers, and B&C 12" or 15" midbasses. Actively bi-amped with QSC amplifiers - maybe 30 watts per horn, 150-200W per midbass.

    The only home speakers I know of that really want as much power as you're talking about are full-size Magneplanars or electrostats, and neither of those are what I'd call good "party" speakers.

    Re: Speakers for my Fraternity House

    Okay, judging by the comments above, I may be better served with two 500w speakers and a sub... so I'll look into that. and I'm a Kappa Sig loggedout

    4kw?
    That's... insane.

    I'd say either go with 2 decently powered speakers, or a bunch of small RMS speakers.
