Having a DJ Controller is awesome but if you want to play in the public, you need some dj speakers.
Also known as “PA speakers”, these guys are designed to help you play in open spaces. There is a reason why the “P-A” stands for the Public Address system.
By the way, most DJ speakers come with built-in subwoofer too so you are never short on bass. I guess that’s a difference when compared to so-called normal speakers.
If you are outdoors or in a public place, these are the guys you need to hook up to your DJ controller or whatever system you have and off you go.

When it comes to Yamaha, it’s fair to say that these guys are the best. Now when it comes to the Yamaha DBR10 700 speakers, the Yamaha DX doesn’t disappoint. At least that’s what the majority seems to say.
Lots of DJs use these and other event organizers as well. It has its own built-in amplifier and sub which will take any party to the next level.

The consensus seems to be that Yamaha DBR10 700 dj speakers are loud and proud and will take your next DJ or any other similar gig to the stratosphere
Behringer EuroLive DJ Speakers
One of my first studio monitors was made by Behringer so I will always have a special place for these guys.
Don’t worry though, this is not a bias review at all.
The overall built of these DJ speakers is solid and to be honest, that is something to expect from the Behringer team. They do make pretty reliable speakers and other similar equipment. No doubt about that.
However, don’t get it confused with being heavy in weight. The Behringer Eurolive are still considered lightweight so they are easy to move around.
These are nice loud dj speakers and for most, they seem to last a long time. Even more than 2 years or so.

This is by far one of the most powerful DJ speakers out there. According to most users, the sound is nice and crisp and if you pair it with a woofer, well then you got a massive party on your hands. The Turbosound IQ10 is actually quite a sophisticated device that packs over 2000 watts in power.
Just make sure you got a big enough party to take a pair of these bad boys to.

ElectroVoice ZLX DJ Speakers
A common sighting at after-hours parties, the ElectroVoice ZLX is an immensely powerful model that is, nonetheless, relatively easy for one person to move and configure. The 15-inch model is a particularly effective unit that’s able to reach deep into the low-end.
JBL EON610 Portable DJ Speakers
Some say as far as the specifications go, these are the best in class. JBL is a well-respected brand and has been for quite some time so the feedback from its users doesn’t really surprise us.

A 10″ woofer combined with 500 watts of power will only bring some major music vibes to any event.
