You'll struggle to find a scalable system that will cover all the bases, the nearest I can think of with a decent budget would be 4 x DZR10s and a couple of DXS15 subs.


Thats 4 x £915
2 x £1587

To be fair, this is quite an expensive game if you want quality/ease of use/reliability.

Your goal is good and the advice here is well intended.

Considering the iD24 rig you linked to is £6.5k for only 4 boxes I'd say that was terrific value. And it'll be much louder.

If you fancy L'Acoustics kit a single 112P (now discontinued) FR cab would set you back £6k+ and it doesn't go as loud as a DZR10.

Good, cheap & loud, pick 2.......

How many 200+ gigs do you do a year*? If it's not many I'd still consider hiring in a big rig (and possibly a sound guy) for the big gigs.

*Two DZR10/12s and a single sub will cover anything small with ease (and possible larger),

It would be worth checking out secondhand Nexo PS10’s and L500/600 subs. You will need th amp + controller but I’ve seen these go for between £3000-£4000 and they are seriously loud!
