Is JBL partybox 1000 worth it at 850$?

I am torn on the JBL Partybox 1000 in terms of audio quality, is the sound good enough for 850$ or should I still look for outdoor speaker. + amp set up?

What's the use case? If you're just going to use it outside for casual gatherings, you definitely don't need a 1000w speaker... Neighbors/cops would shut that down real quick. On the other hand if you need it as a PA speaker, you'd probably be better off with a legit PA system.

More towards the first reason, neighbours ors and cops are a non-issue 

I though of going with good IP68 speakers + an amp/recivier with Dolby Atmos/Airplay and all of the other features, however, I don't know what reciver to choose, and all of the speaker with IP68 are selling for 3ple the price in Russia, was considering 5 sets of Polk Audio Atrium 4(10 speakers not for loudness was a wider area coverage).

Just get a pair of proper powered PA speakers, and a small mixer to drive em properly. Gear4music sells a really decent bundle.

If you have any questions about ultra high end audio (Or any speakers or audio gear!), don't be afraid to shoot me a message, or mention me.

 

Spent over 960k on audio gear, still trying to increase sound quality.

 

For a guide on Microphones and Interfaces, I strongly suggest scrolling through @The Flying Sloth's guide.
