The dbx DriveRack PA2 gice you all you need to get the most from your PA. Now with complete control from your mobile device!

The DriveRack PA2 provides all the processing you need between your mixer and amplifiers to optimize and protect your loudspeakers. With the latest advancements in dbx’s proprietary AutoEQ and AFS algorithms, a new input delay module for delaying the FOH system to the backline, Ethernet control via an Android, iOS, Mac, or Windows device, and updated Wizards, the DriveRack PA2 continues the DriveRack legacy of great-sounding, powerful, and affordable loudspeaker management processors, for a whole new generation.

AutoEQ
New, improved AutoEQ algorithm ensures an extremely accurate, fast, and non-intrusive automatic EQ experience. With the RTA Mic “listening” to your room, the new, updated DriveRack PA2 AutoEQ algorithm sets speaker levels and room EQ automatically in a matter of seconds. This means room adjustments can now be made very quickly, without subjecting the audience to annoying, lengthy broadcasts of pink noise.

Enhanced AFS Feedback Elimination
Enhanced AFS™ algorithm for faster, more precise feedback elimination, without adversely affecting your system’s tone.Nothing turns audiences away like annoying and potentially painful audio feedback. Fortunately, dbx engineers have revisited their already-stellar Advanced Feedback Suppression algorithm and made it work even better. The DriveRack PA2 listens for and anticipates feedback and adjusts speaker output automatically before it even has a chance, while never altering your sound.

Updated Wizard Setup Functions
Updated Wizards make initial set up easy, while ensuring speaker tunings and other settings are up-to-date. Wizard functions on the DriveRack PA2 guide you through easy, step-by-step processes to help you get the most from your loudspeaker system. Helps you easily configure level balancing, AutoEQ, Advanced Feedback Suppression, and provides access to built-in and constantly updating speaker tunings from most major speaker manufacturers.

Features:
  • All New Setup Wizard
  • Streamlined AutoEQ
  • All New AFS (Advanced Feedback Suppression)
  • Mobile Control (Android, iOS, Mac, Windows)
  • dbx Compression
  • Graphic EQ
  • 8-Band Parametric EQ (adjusted when using the AutoEQ) Input
  • Subharmonic Synthesis
  • Crossover (supports full range, 2-way, and 3-way systems)

        Comments about dbx DriveRack PA2 Complete Loudspeaker Management System:

        This is going to put somebody out of work. It used to be that you'd have to scrutinize what frequencies when to what speakers, and set delay times, so that the folks in the cheap seats didn't hear echos, but this things built in mic listens to the sound, analyzes your setup, and sets itself. It can dial in a better sound than even a professional sound engineer could get. Very impressive.

              This thing is like a crossover on steroids. You can do a lot more than just choose what frequencies go to what speaker. You can control and tweak everything. If you're running a big PA setup, you have to have one of these.

                I TELL ALL MY CLIENTS, IF YOU WANT TO ENCHANCE YOUR PA WITHOUT BUYING 20 PROCESSORS AND HAVE TO CONNECT THEM ALL, BUY THIS PA RACK. SIMPLY AWESOME AND EZ TO USE. SUPPRESTION, COMPRESSION, COMPRESSION (FOR USE WITH SUBWOOFER). THIS IS THE ULTIMATE GAME CHANGER.

                    Comments about dbx DriveRack PA2 Complete Loudspeaker Management System:

                    This is a all in one perfect solution. What used to take up a whole rack can now be done by 1 rack space. EQ, limiter, gate, crossover and more! It has an auto EQ section that will listen to the room and correct to make the sound as optimal as possible. DBX also put AFS in this unit which is a real time feedback suppressor. Best of all you can connect to this unit to your tablet or smart phone and have hands on control from anywhere in the venue! This is a soundmans best friend.

                      The DriveRack PA2 is an excellent piece for anyone using passive speakers. It allows you to maximize your sound and EQ while not overloading and blowing out your speakers. A must have.

                            Replace almost eveything in your live sound rack with the Driverack! One of the small downsides of the last models was that the led screen on the front was a little hard to wrap your head around. Now the Drive rack can be wirelessly controlled with an Ipad and it is super simple to adjust the parameters. This has everything from a crosover, to an eq, and most importantly, the pink noise generator that will eliminate feedback from your room. A must have for live sound.
