New PA Setup Questions / Advise

So I am looking at getting a new PA setup for the outdoor theater setup. I already have the projector, BR player and screen and looking at audio.

At first I thought I would go with a small mixer and 2 15" PA speakers (JBL EON 515XT) for stereo audio and I would be set. The 15"s should give me some decent low end bass for those parts of the movies that need it.

Now I am wondering if I should go with smaller left and rights and add a separate sub.

Let me know what you guys think. Or if I am going way overboard for what I am trying to do. This will just be in backyards for my family, maybe some friends and neighbors occasionally. The setup will be stored in the garage when not in use.

Thanks for all the help!

The JBLs will definitely cover it. May be overkill. I use 6”bookshelf speakers and an 80 watt sub and have no problem covering a crowd of30-40.

Anyone else that has PA's out there? Please let me know what you are using so I can get a better sense of what I should get - 10", 12" or 15"... I can get a pretty good deal on some EON 510's (10") or the EON 515XT's (15") right now and am waiting to place the order until I get some feedback.

Please let me know what is working for everyone! Thank!

I have Electro-Voice ZLX-12P's with 45 ft of shielded cable for each one, LTO ZMX52 sound board Proline speaker stands 6 ft. Screen 14.5 Gemmy blowup. Optima EH415. All of speaker setup went to Guitar Center for cost $1000. I didn't want to make a mistake on speaker setup, and it was more then worth the price to have a great setup for sound. I don't really push the sound at all with this setup, would suggest you check sound from different speakers at Guitar Center or some place like it before you buy. I would not change anything except screen at this point looking at making 16 by 9 ft for next year, EH415 can handle it easy.

well I guess I may be overboard I use equipment that i already have. I just invite all the neighbors . I have 2 ev elx115p and 1 ev elx118p subwoofer. sometimes i just use my portable technical pro wasp100wbt. it works ok plus it has a battery that will give you long picnic music without ac.

this is the Technical Pro wasp1100wbt portable speaker that i sometimes use. Not very much bass but it works when i don't want to setup all the gear.It has a 12" driver and a tweeter. I believe it was under 250.
