Not so good in a larger space - Reviews Peavey PR 15D

The Peavey PR 15D is a 15 inch powered PA speaker. This is a D class speaker that has 200 watts of overall power. The sound is decent in a larger space but it is best in smaller venues even though it is a 15 inch. That is what confused me the most about it because with it being a rather larger speaker the sound in a larger space still was not very big.
The weight of this speaker is pretty standard, it is not too heavy but I have had much lighter 15 inch loud speakers. It has a handle on the top of it and also the side of it for carrying it. It can also be mounted to a pole because the pole mounts are molded in. There are volume control on the mic in line making it easy to change your levels quickly but there is no EQ, not even a 2 Band EQ which was needed for us.
The frequency range is 47 Hz to 20kHz which is pretty good but with having a speaker size of 15 inches I did think the sound would have been a lot bigger. It does sound great in smaller places though but I would not want to pay this amount of money unless it could handle a larger venue/space.
I would not purchase this speaker again knowing what I know now. We did not keep it long when we had it because it was not as powerful as we thought it was going to be. We used it once and we were not happy with it. I have own several Peavey loudspeakers in the past and I am not sure what went wrong with this one because the other ones that I have used were great. The sound quality is good in smaller spaces but there is no way I would pay this price for that sound in a larger space.
