Default Best PA for acoustic music?

I've always loved Sr, Acus, Schertler or AER acoustic amplifers. Many of these brands make some speaker for PA which are very good having a very scooped sound with great trebles, but they are really expensive. If i had to purchase some traditional speakers a little more affordable which speakers are more cut for acoustic music?

I've used a Yamaha EMX5 wiht JBL Pro 12' monitors for the last year for our club and it has been great.
I run either a Fender Acoustic 100 (1x10, 2 discrete channel, Xlr outs) or Mesa Rosette (2x8 w.horn 3002 2 channel Xlr outs)

Works like a charm

Budget? Do you already have a PA and power amp? I have more questions than answers.

That said, Yamaha Stagepas 400 or 600 sound really good and have a Hi-Z input built into the mixer.

I’m quite fond of the JBL sound…my EON 610’s are warm and natural sound to my ears although they don’t have the detail and clarity of the QSC’s I used to own….and they’re lighter weight and way less expensive.

I’m in the UK but this is a US link so as not to confuse the natives.

Til now I’ve been a happy EV/Dynacord and Yamaha dxr user but these are off the scale.

Great minds think alike. A pair DZR10s came to my house last week. They are definitely at a buy once cry once price but they are also Yammy”s top of the line. Won’t ever need another speaker.

Blimey! Over $2500 for a pair! That's quite an investment. What about the other kit needed to make full use of the features? Do you have to have the Yamaha mixer etc? Or are they good to go with "normal" analog kit?

The EV 30M/50M sound wonderful and have amazingly good coverage. They are as easy to transport and set up as a simple acoustic amp and a stand.
