Default High Efficiency PA System

I am looking to build a PA system for parties etc, I would like to build something fairly robust with high efficiency (95db+, 100db ideal) any projects worth looking at or driver suggestions? Budget is about 800AU max.

How big?

One 15" woofer and a horn tweeter? Or do you need more than that?

Are you looking for efficiency or volume? I believe that there's someone on the forum who built a PA that sounded pretty darn nice out of NSB's, might be worth considering.

I did a sub sat system with a 15 sub and two 10s and horns.
I needed the coverage of speakers in the air but the nice bottom you get from putting a sub on the floor.
it turened out sounding ok with 2 pro amps one in bridge running the sub and the other one powering passivly crossed tops.
Had I done it today i would probably run 12inch drivers rather then the 10s for the tops.It just sounds a bit thin when you are close to the sats and at a distance from the sub. Or heck why not two 10s and a 1 inch driver.
i would recomend against a 15 inch and a 1 inch because of the problem you will get in the upper midrange.Maybe a 15 and a 2 inch crossed low but then youll loose out on the really high frqs.
thanks for reading.
