I am curious what audio setup for PyroMusical displays others use? I am looking at PA systems because my 4 large LG speakers just haven't cut it in previous years. I can't seem to wrap my head around the amps vs. watt, ect... Basically all the audio language. :p
Basically, I need the sound to be as loud or louder than the fireworks, and I have the ability to set up fairly close to the audience. Audience size is around 100ish max.

I would recommend either 2 powered 210/215 speakers or 4 powered 112 speakers.

For 100 people this will be PLENTY powerful, especially since you can setup near the audience.

If you are only using it once a year check with some local rental companies. They may have something you can rent pretty cheap.

If they don't then I recommend 8 Cerwin Vega earthquakes and 12k watts to power them. Throw a dozen Yamaha mains on top and you should he golden.

I have always liked qsc amps.

Ignore all if this except the first part. A system that size would be way overkill and could be heard for miles.

I am currently running 4 of these connected together and placed in a semi-circle in the front of the audience. I think if I can build some stands for them to get them off the ground higher it might help.
Thoughts?
Those are fairly weak powered @ 150 advertised watts. Manufacturers typically use the peak power rating as the advertised watts, normal operation is half of that. I would look into name brand powered entry level PA speakers 1000+ watts peak power. For your application 2 of these would do really well. Look at JBL and Mackie, a pair costs about $600-800.

Thank you for the tip! This helps narrow things down a lot, and that is within my budget!
