Switching to powered pa

Porteuph

I am looking to switch from my jbl srx 725 and 728 to a powered system. I have a 11 piece band with 4 piece horn section and full rhythm section and 2 singers. We play a mix of Brazilian and Latin music and for crowds of 300-600 people in good size halls. I am using a presonus 24.4.2 which I love so I have been researching the new presonus 315ai speakers but I can't find any reviews on them so I was looking for some suggestions on some speakers that would work for my band. I have budget of around$6000 any help would be great. Thank you ahead of time for any help with this.

Have you listened to the QSC KW153 three way tops and KW181 subs? Another good (less expensive) option would be the new Yamaha DXR series.

If you like the sound of the SRXes, you should look at the PRX series.

So long as your amps are adequate, you have a good rig. I'd keep it.

I run SRX715 over SRX718 each side (smaller version of what you have) and when I have a little less room in bars, I run two PRX612's over ONE PRX718xlf. I love both systems for different reasons and the PRX system is very capable but quite honestly, the SRX system is the business (especially those SRX subs). I'd keep what you have......
