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)

                          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.

                          Operating the PA 2 from my laptop or smartphone is more convenient than laying on my side and navigating through different menus. Mute switches on each channel are very useful. This unit allowed me to refine the sound of my JBL EON 515xt speakers so much, that using my subwoofer (for playback at low/medium volumes) has become optional. Overall very neat, it's kind of a watered down version of the original though

                            I absolutely love the DBX Drive Rack. After hassling with standard crosssovers for years, the Drive Rack makes tuning your system a breeze. With presets for major brand speakers already program, you may very well be able to set the Drive Rack to optimize the speakers you already own. With the new mobile update, you need to add this to your collection.

                            This is a real, hands on review from Steve at Sam Ash Music Indianapolis.
