I would agree with GCumbee with one change – I would put the QSC KW121 at the top of that list. The W in the name means that the boxes are wooden. It makes them heavier but also makes them sound better than the K12s (not that the K12s are shabby). The KW153 (powered three-way speaker with wooden enclosure) is also a good choice – definitely a musical box that is extremely efficient and can easily handle the crowd sizes you described and will work well for any musical genre.
I would also look at the offerings from RCF. I’ve only had the pleasure of using the RCF TT25 speakers (small format) but they sound terrific. If any shop in my area had any other offerings from RCF I would rent them just to hear how they sound. If the TT25 is any indication, they would sound great.
