Finding far more efficient speakers may be a far easier and cheaper way to boost output.
I would start looking at other speaker units which are more efficient. Particularly HORN TYPE.
With a moderate horn type you could easily double the SPL with the current amp you use now.
Thanks for all the replys so far.
In regards to the horns we are now offering horns as an option to our customers which increases the volume ten fold. We are the only company on the market that offers units with outdoor speakers which has been a huge selling point. Sound quality is our biggest concern. Our outdoor speakers aren't by any means the most top end so we will try ordering the next step up and see how that sounds.
When you refer to a preamp what kind would you recommend I am not familiar with those. Bluetooth control unfortunately doesn't offer the range we are looking for that I have found.
The frequencies you want to use may not include very low frequencies.
Low frequencies use the most power from an amplifier.
If you found the 'bottom' frequency your sounds need to be good sounding.. and filter out all the sound below the select frequencies. High pass filters are easy to implement, and not very expensive. It would be before the amplifier.
So the amp would no longer be amplifying low frequency crap (which you do not want, and which muddy up the sound anyway)
This alone would also give you more apparent power, as the amp is no longer amplifying worthless low frequency noise.
