Well, i think that even before you start looking for some there are a few guide line that you can follow. First thing first, you’ll need to know for how many people you will perform for. Are you a DJ for Private Parties, Weddings, Clubs etc..? Obviously if you only do Private Parties, you definitely won’t need powerful speakers. Instead if you are going to play music for weddings or Clubs, well your speakers are going to be much more powerful so that the sound can reach 200+ people. Talking technically, also the size of the room can have a big impact on the Speakers performance so keep that in mind!
An other thing that you’ll need to know, is what type of speakers you will need. Active or Passive! If you don’t know what does that mean, i’ll explain it to you very quickly. Active speakers have a built-in amplifier, so they won’t need any extra piece of hardware in order for them to work. Passive instead, is the complete opposite, they don’t have a built-in amplifier, so you’ll need a separate amplifier that will connect to the speakers.
My last tip is “Buying Second Hand”! Yes, buying second hand can save a lot of cash, but there is always the risk to get a “lemon”. A friend of mine once bought a pair of speakers, he tried them at the seller’s house and they sounded good so he bought it. Unfortunately one week later during a party that he was doing, after playing for 3 hours one of them stopped working. Later on he found out that it was defected. I personally think that spending a few hundred dollar more can save you a lot of hassle. If you know you are gonna be a DJ, investing in some good equipment is never wrong.
After these few tips, i know for a fact that you are 100% ready to buy some DJ Speakers. I also know that when it comes to money, we all would like to save a bit and know that what we bought is the best we could find out there. Well as a DJ and Music Producer, i know what’s out there. I’ve found the best 3 Affordable DJ speakers that will give you the best result and handle your gigs better then any other expensive speakers.
Starting from the most affordable DJ Speakers out there, i couldn’t have not mention the EUROLIVE B212D.
Active 550-Watt 2-Way Speakers
Talking size, it comes with an extremely powerful 12” long-excursion driver which provides incredibly deep bass. 1.35” aluminium-diaphragm compression driver for exceptional high-frequency reproduction.
Couldn’t really pick a better one if you consider its price! Very light and easy to carry, it weights only 14 kg. If tilted on its side it can be used as a floor monitor as well! It has dedicated 2-band EQ for perfect sound adjustment.
Overall, the B212D are great and really affordable DJ speakers. They can easily feed 100 people so they will be perfect for private parties like 18th birthday or just small functions. I highly recommend them if you are starting out as a DJ or just want to play for small parties.

These speakers are my favourite. I actually own them and let me tell you what, they are fantastic!
Only the Mackie Thump15 delivers the class-leading, chest-thumping low end you deserve. With 1000W of power, the Thump15 provides the high output you need in a package that’s tough, lightweight and portable.
They offer a 3-band EQ. And with a rugged enclosure and robust system protection, you’re more than ready for your next gig. Delivering real-world power levels, you can be confident that the Thump15 offers the best performance for your money.
I personally use them for weddings and private parties and a few time i had to play in a pop up club on the beach. I think there were around 300 people and i was very concerned about the sound dispersion as i had to play outdoor. Well they were excellent and i had no problems at all, everybody was having fun including me!
I advice these speakers to a lot of people. They will get you trough thousands of gigs. Great Price, great sound, great brand!

If you are looking for the ultimate DJ speakers, the JBL PRX800 are what you are looking for! The price is not very low but let me tell you, for the capability that these speakers have the price is very affordable!
Offering 1200 watt for each speaker, they can blow a lot of sound and easily can be used for night clubs and big functions. I wouldn’t recommend these speakers for a beginner DJ. They are very loud. They can be used as floor monitors thanks to their design.
As you can notice, the back doesn’t have any knob for EQing. The speakers have a free phone app (For IPhone and Android) which connects to them. The app allows you to control a 8 Band EQ and not only! You can adjust the sound of the speakers to the room, save presets and connect multiple speakers together without the need of cables. Isn’t this crazy!!
The JBL PRX800 series is definitely the future of speakers. If you have a good budget to spend and are looking to buy TOP quality and new technology combined together, the JBL PRX800 15″ are the best affordable DJ speakers out there with no doubt!
