I love my Bose L1 Series 2 speakers. I have two setups with two Bass modules per speaker and am completly happy with my purchase.
However, I’m note a big fan of bringing them outdoors. I have and the music is great but having my speakers exposed to the elements (dust, floating pollen balls, mist, humidity, sun baking, etc) makes me nervous.
So I am looking for alternatives for outside wedding ceremonies and I believe I am going to settle for the JBL EON series speakers. They two are powered.
For the Ceremony I will utilize just one JBL EON510 10″ 280w Powered speaker or the JBL EON515 450w powered speaker. No deep bass from a 10″ sub but the ability to play all music and prior to ceremony I could just throw a cover over the speaker to keep out the dust.
Also an advantage of using the JBL is a speaker stand with adjustable legs to offset differences in levelness in the ground. With the Bose its very difficult on uneven surface.
For price I am looking at
$600 for the EON510 or $800 for the EON515
$70 speaker cover for the EON515
$150 Ultimate TS-100 Air-Powered Speaker Stand
$1100 TOTAL (max with tax)
Then make your speaker wireless by adding the Phonic WM-SYS4 which includes
