I am in charge of designing an audio system for a fraternity basement, as the previous systems we've had have not worked out as well. Last year we purchased 2 Peavey PV 215 speakers and were running them off of a Behringer EP4000 Europower Power Amplifier. Originally, these speakers seemed to be just about loud enough, but over the course of the year were eventually no longer loud and the sound quality was terrible. The basement is very large, around 1500 square feet, we usually have around 150-200 people attending parties. I am looking to purchase and permanently install a system that will be almost impossible to blow out, and get extremely loud, to the point of discomfort. The overall sound quality is less important than the volume level and durability. I was hoping you could offer me some help and recommendations for a system. I believe part of the problem has been connecting and disconnecting iPods. To combat this, I plan to load playlists onto a computer in the audio cabinet and have this be the audio source. Any help you can offer would be appreciated. My budget is somewhat flexible, ideally below 2500.
