Best DJ Speakers

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.


Yamaha DBR10 700 Speaker

Yamaha DBR10 700-Watt Powered Speaker
  • Bi-Amped, 10" Powered Speaker
  • High Performance Main or Monitor Speaker
  • 7-Year Warranty

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.

Naturally, there are some experts who don’t like these due to whatever reason (Not enough bass, clarity, etc) but a whole bunch of people do seem to enjoy them.

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

Behringer EUROLIVE B210D Active 200 Watt 2-Way PA Speaker System with 10" Woofer and 1.35" Compression Driver
  • High-power 200-Watt 2-way PA sound reinforcement speaker system for live and playback applications
  • Ultra-compact and light weight system delivers excellent sound even at extreme sound pressure levels
  • Revolutionary Class-D amplifier technology: enormous power, incredible sonic performance and super-light weight

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.
