Don't judge a speaker based on its size and power handling.

I like JBL. But normally, they are way more expensive simply because they say JBL. I know you own a lot of their stuff. Are these actually better than the Peavey's, or are you just linking them because they are JBL.
This is JBL Professional's lowest priced lineup when it comes to sound reinforcement. The Peavey speakers you linked to are meant to be used as personal monitors.

They better be better because they are $50 more a piece. And if you haven't been following the convo, money is an issue here. I'm not sure how much I'll be getting. Also. That wasn't supposed to sound bitchy. But I'm saying things how they are lately because I've been so frustrated.
Ask for donations. I don't care how small it's supposed to be. You better spend some money now in order to save costs in the future. Don't buy shit because it's the cheapest thing out there. From experience, it'll end up biting you in the ass later on. That's why I attempt to buy quality products. It may be more expensive at first, but it usually pays off in the future.

I've been doing so much sh*t and everyone else seems to be doing nothing, or criticizing what I'm doing...or asking stupid questions about what I'm doing (<- not on here...at my church/other places).
Then don't do it. You're not charity. Let them stick with what they have. If you feel your actions aren't being recognized as positive, spend your time and effort somewhere else. Your intentions may be good, but if the end result is not how they expected it, you'll only end up frustrating yourself and your church's members.

Alright. Question then: would these "fill" the room better than the Peavey's?

I thought they were either/or's. That's why they have a poll mount. I've never seen monitors on a poll mount.

Trust me. I understand this. It's other people who don't. I'm going to try my best to get the money but I'm only one person.

I'm going to tell them almost this exact same thing. I'm going to tell them that I'm not going to waste my time installing a crap ass system. If I'm going to do it I'm going to get at least $2,500 or they can deal with what they have. I'm sick of doing this shit for no appreciation. I needed to hear that, J. Others have told me the same thing this week.

Another question then, how much better would a $2,000 or $3,000 budget be? What would I get for that?

Do you think we should mount them on the ceiling/wall? I'm not sure how we'd do it, but I could devise a plan. There are corners on both sides of the projector screen. I could see some type of reinforced "shelf" housing them their. That way, the speaker cable could literally run right through the wall into the projector room. Easy-peasy.

Well, that larger budget would help.

If you're going to mount something, make sure the speaker was designed for that purpose. Internal bracing and overall integrity are vital when hanging or mounting any speaker, especially in a commercial setting.

Proper sound reinforcement is another beast altogether, and I think you should seek another forum dedicated to this issue.

I personally recommend DJForums.com and ProSoundWeb. With the latter, I'd spend most of my time reading instead of posting. The website is aimed at industry professionals, and if you're not one, don't bother posting. They aren't very receptive.

Well, I was thinking of just sitting them on a shelf of some sort...so it wouldn't have to be manufactured for hanging or anything.

I'll have a look but it's hard to dig through forums like that. I'll take a look, nonetheless.
