Hello,

I started with dj'ing a time ago .. and I want to buy my first speakers.
I don't have much experience with it so I would like to have some information of you.

I have the intention to play on little birthdayparties and in my room
So speakers for rooms of 100-150men.

I have 2 speakers :
Woofer: 15" with Aluminium Voice Coll
Tweeter: Super Piezo Driver & 5" x 15" Horn
Frequenzy Response : 40Hz-20,000Hz
Impedence : 8 Ohm
Power Rating : 125 Watts RMS/ 250 Watts peak

Now my question; is this enough RMS,.. ??
Thank you

Depends on a few things, off the top of my head:

1) Acoustics of room
2) SPL of speakers
3) Type of music you're playing
4) Whether or not you want to 'fill' the entire room (functions may only require the dancefloor area to be adequately covered)

My advice would be to spend as much as you can afford. An active setup can be more expensive but will be more portable.

What brand of speakers do you have?

Generally speaking I would have thought that 2 x 15" speakers kicking out 125watts rms would struggle to play to a full room of a 150 strong crowd. I'd advise on investing in a separate sub (or 2) to handle the low frequencies. Then if you use your current speakers to handle the higher frequencies, you can drive them harder. You'll also need crossovers.
